Fun and foundational

Computer science is super fun because it is creative and playful. Whether it’s solving a puzzle, coding art, or designing an app, students prefer learning by exploring rather than memorizing. Students even rank CS their favorite subject after art, music, and dance.

Computer science is foundational to all fields of study, but since many schools don’t offer it yet, this could be a unique chance to support your child in a fun new learning opportunity. Plus, recent studies show: children who study computer science perform better in other subjects, excel at problem-solving, and are 17% more likely to enroll in college.

Join us in welcoming YouTube CEO, Susan Wojcicki, alongside actress China Anne McClain.

Sign up to receive each week's activities, general updates, and unique opportunities to interact with our special guests.
