For the special celebration of Computer Science Education Week, Apple launched a new program that will bring coding to over a dozen cities of the United States with the primary help of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and make accessible coding on Swift for thousands of students across the country along with supporting the company’s Racial Equity and Justice Initiative.
With getting the advantage of Apple’s ‘Everyone Can Code’ curriculum, students can get a great opportunity to create app design and development on Swift using iPad with ongoing professional support from Apple’s intelligent, passionate, creative educators.
Apple’s new program will initially be available in 10 new regions, including Atlanta, Austin, Miami-Dade County, Wake County, North, and Silicon Valley, and the company said the coding programs have already been launched in Atlantic City, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, and Newark.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America also launching a new STEAM pre-apprenticeship program in New Jersey that is joining Design Lab and STEAM Labs for teaching students creativity, coding, and programming on Swift using iPad and Mac and eventually giving them a certificate for its App Development learning.
In a new program, students ages 18 to 24 worked in small groups to learn Swift coding language, app prototypes, and human interface design to further develop critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.
