- The MassTLC EF was glad to partner with code.org to bring this important initiative to Massachusetts that reached over ½ million students in the state in just one week. Our event hashtags were mentioned close to 500 times on Twitter alone, featuring great stories and pictures of students who experienced firsthand the magic of computer science. We've collected some highlights we hope you enjoy as much as we do!
