Wednesday 29 April 2020 | 09:25 CET | News
Amazon said it will donate USD 3.9 million to CodeVA through 2022 to support their long-term plan to offer computer science education and training to every high needs school across Virginia – more than 700 schools, including rural regions like the Eastern Shore, the Tobacco Commission service region and Appalachia that may otherwise lack access, training or funding. The donation will support more than 0.5 million students and more than 12,000 teachers, particularly those in underserved and underrepresented communities.
