Computer science for every K-12 school in the U.S.
Computing jobs will outnumber students by one million by the end of the decade, but 90% of U.S. K-12 schools don’t offer computer science, a critically foundational field for all 21st-century students.
With a $500,000 grant, Code.org is partnering with school districts to train teachers and implement computer science at all grade levels, communicating the value of computer science education to administrators and policymakers, developing modern online curriculum, and running the worldwide Hour of Code awareness campaign.
Since 2014, Code.org has introduced 38 million students to computer science with its Hour of Code campaign. It is partnering with school districts across the U.S. to expand computer science programs and has developed online curriculum used by more than 25,000 classrooms and one million students. So far, Code.org has supported efforts in 12 U.S. states to allow computer science to count toward high school graduation.
