“® is a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. provides the leading curriculum for K-12 computer science in the largest school districts in the United States and also organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 10% of all students in the world. is supported by generous donors including Amazon, Facebook, Google, the Infosys Foundation, Microsoft, and many more.

Teachers say our elementary courses are “totally awesome sauce” and fun for all students, even pre-readers. Our new middle school course can be offered as a semester or year-long introduction to computer science for all students. We offer two year-long courses for high school: an intro course and an AP course. Both are designed to broaden participation in computer science. If you don’t have time for a full length course, try a one-hour tutorial designed for all ages. Join millions of students and teachers in over 180 countries by starting with an Hour of Code.  In addition to our courses, teachers can use App Lab and Game Lab in any course to teach students how to create apps, animations, and games in JavaScript. And, we have lessons and widgets to teach encryption, text compression, and other computer science concepts.”
