Our agency is the founding entity of the Fast Forward Mississippi initiative, which is dedicated to reversing the loss of Mississippi’s intellectual capital (brain-drain), and helping to develop a knowledge-based workforce for the 21st century. One of the signature projects of initiative is Kids Code Mississippi. As you can probably guess, Kids Code MS focuses on digital literacy awareness and promoting digital skills (coding) among Mississippi youth.
On May 2nd, through Fast Forward and Kids Code MS, we helped to organize and produce the first full-day “hackathon” for high school students, at Terry High School. You can read about the event at the links below.
