Code Nation (formerly ScriptEd) equips students in under-resourced schools with the coding skills and professional experiences that together open doors to careers in technology. The organization offers a two-year coding program offered as an in-school elective or afterschool program in conjunction with a summer bridge program in year one and paid summer internships in year two. Courses are taught by experienced software engineers.
