We power the Fast Forward Mississippi initiative and are a sponsor of it’s Kids Code Mississippi special project. With the support and patronage of C Spire, the Mississippi State Extension Service Tech Outreach/Intelligent Communities Institute, Visit Mississippi/MS Creative Economy Bureau, and several private citizens, we helped produce the first statewide student-based coding contest as part of Mississippi Innovation Month in November, 2015.
Winners of this contest were recently announced on the Kids Code Mississippi website. We’re so proud of all the students who participated in this effort, and excited about the momentum gathering behind the notion of teaching digital skills and computer science to young people. We encourage you all to stay up with these and related developments via¬†Fast Forward Mississippi. There are some exciting things looming on the horizon.
As always, we encourage everyone to join the movement to #Create4Good.
