Helping millions of students and educators develop technical skills for the future
More than 65% of students will work in jobs that don’t even exist today.¹ We want to help prepare them for that future by getting them excited about where computer science (CS) can take them. So we’re building programs and supporting partners that reach millions of students every year, with a focus on girls and others who are underrepresented in the field today.
Programs to support and encourage students
Made with Code
Online activities, resources, and mentor videos to inspire teen girls to take their first step in code, and to see technology as a means to pursue their dreams.
A global competition for 13-18 year olds to use science and technology to solve problems in their community.
Connecting college students in the U.S. and Canada studying CS with mentorship opportunities.
CS opportunities at Google
