Get Ready For A Coding Revolution!
The San José Public Library has partnered with Mayor Sam Liccardo and the Silicon Valley Leadership Group to present the Coding5k Challenge - a new city-wide initiative that will further enhance access and opportunities for FREE, quality STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) learning programs.
Our goal is to have 5,000 unduplicated K-12 students participate in coding classes, annually, by the year 2020.
To help achieve this goal, we've partnered with local tech companies and expert volunteers who will present coding programs throughout our branch libraries.
