Here’s a thought:
- Take a great course like http://www.nand2tetris.org that teaches fundamentals all the way up to building a working game in a few months.
- Go teach minority/female kids how to code after school for free.
- Help build the next generation of tech stars.
- Don’t get discouraged when a high % of your students drop out. This is not a minority/gender issue…coding is not a skill that everyone is going to pursue.
