Millions of people of all ages have learned an Hour of Code, a one-hour introductory course designed to demystify computer science and show that anybody can learn the basics.
We're working to give every student the opportunity to learn computer science — online and in schools where we’ll establish permanent courses and train teachers. One child learns for every dollar you donate.
Encourage local elementary schools to teach our elementary curriculum or recruit teachers to attend a one-day workshop- at no cost. Or partner with Code.org to bring permanent courses into middle and high schools.
Petition your state to allow computer science to count towards math or science high school graduation credits. And promote computer science in your area with these stats, quotes and videos.
If you're already a software engineer, there are many opportunities to get involved locally. Volunteer to teach our other courses to local student with this guide. And sign up to hear about volunteer opportunities near you.
Code.org's online platform Code Studio enables students to learn the basic concepts of computer science as early as kindergarten. Within Code Studio, a new Play Lab has been developed where elementary students can create and send apps or animations directly to a cell phone, just by typing in the phone number.
With millions of students trying the Hour of Code, and hundreds of thousands doing the Code.org introductory online courses, we could use your help adding helpful hints for students who make mistakes. In just 10 minutes you can help improve our courses.
