The North Dakota State Library and their partners will explore the feasibility of weekly, informal coding programs at 50 small and rural public libraries across the United States. The "Coding at Every Library Project" will reach over 10,000 youth ages 8-14 will enable libraries to better support youth in learning to code and generate resources and a practitioner community that will enable many more libraries to offer coding programs. The project will leverage Prenda's expertise and computer science education platform to directly support non-expert facilitators at a low cost. And support the establishment of an open online community of Practitioners. This project builds on an existing North Dakota initiative, CodeDak, by providing libraries with the resources, skills, and inspiration necessary to host Hour of Code events and support regular code clubs.
