Two Iron Yard graduates, Austin Cleek and Katy Campen, have been working with the Tennessee Code Academy and 100 Girls of Code to teach short-format code classes to kids across the state of Tennessee and other states in the Southeast. Most recently, those same students built the curriculum for Digital Pathways, a code camp licensing program.
Today, Tennessee Code Academy launched Digital Pathways, their new code camp licensing program. The initiative empowers communities to place students in an engaging, real-world environment in which they are challenged to create with computer programming.
The Digital Pathways program aims to make it easier for a community to conduct weeklong coding and digital literacy camps. The group trains a local instructor, provides camp supplies and offers application and payment processing. Treehouse just announced a formal partnership with Digital Pathways to provide discounted online learning for any student who attends these camps.
