Code.org founder Hadi Partovi to speak at UW on May 8

11338404406_e73c309476_z1In December, more than 20 million students around the globe participated in the Hour of Code, organized by Code.org – a Seattle-based non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science. The event allowed students to try their hand at coding and prompted discussions among policymakers and educators about how to provide students with greater access to computer science education.

That discussion – and Hadi Partovi, co-founder and CEO of Code.org – will come to the University of Washington’s Seattle campus May 8 for the Washington Education Innovation Forum.

Join us on Thursday May 8 at Kane Hall Room 110. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the event and live-streaming on UWTV will begin at 7 p.m. Free registration is on EventBrite.
