Video library

We are building a growing library of educational videos available for re-use by educators worldwide, online or in classrooms. Our goal is to enable our efforts to be amplified beyond our own curriculum's reach. Note: see below for the licensing restrictions on use of these videos.

Create apps in minutes with App Lab

App Lab is a JavaScript programming environment for students to make simple apps that live on the web. Use this standalone tool in your classroom to supplement any CS course. Design an app, code with blocks or JavaScript to make it work, then share your app in seconds.

Create a animation or game with Game Lab (beta)

Game Lab is a programming environment where you can make simple animations and games with objects and characters that interact with each other. Design an animation or game, code with blocks or JavaScript to make it work, then share your app in seconds.

Build on problem solving skills with these digital tools

Students can explore concepts from our Computer Science Principles course hands-on using these digital tools. Let them encrypt and decrypt messages, compress song lyrics, and more! Use the widgets on their own, or create a single-concept lesson for your class using the plans linked below.

Find a guest speaker for your classroom

Connect what your students are learning to things they can build in the real world by inviting a guest speaker to your classroom. You can use our map of volunteers to contact local volunteers to visit your classroom, or search in any city to find computer science students or technical professionals who are ready to inspire your students remotely, via video chat.
