Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       The online Codecademy site….which has specialized in teaching technology skills to millions of people around the world…has been offering thousands of scholarships to Codecademy Pro to high school and college students in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis.     CEO and co-founder Zach Sims says prospective learners can go the Codecademy.com site…

“They then can sign up, as long as they have a  k12 or dot edu email address.  They’ll be granted access to Codecademy Pro for the next 90 days and really from there they can choose what they’re interested to learn.  And that can be Web development, mobile development, data science.  And then they take these interactive courses online.”

The company has seen a lot of response already to the offer which is limited in number.   The site again is www.codecademy.com.
