Code.org and Amazon Future Engineer are working together to reach more students in India
Computer science is a foundational subject for a 21st century education. Students who study CS perform better in other subjects, excel at problem solving, and are 17% more likely to attend college. By offering CS to more students, we’re helping create new opportunities for them.
Code.org has partnered with Amazon Future Engineer in India to reach students from underserved and underrepresented communities. Amazon Future Engineer is a comprehensive childhood-to-career community program providing students early exposure and access to CS education through online and blended learning formats.
