Computer Science Offerings Childhood to Career

We provide standards aligned and culturally responsive computer science curriculum and teacher training to make sure educators have the tools they need to feel confident in the classroom. We’ve designed our offerings to not only be easy for students to pick up, but also simple enough for teachers without any prior coding experience to succeed, and help their student succeed, too.

We’ve teamed up with Code.org and BootUp Professional Development to bring elementary computer science teacher training and curriculum to teachers and districts around the country. Educators can also experience our one-time or one week projects to allow their students the ability to explore computer science in fun and engaging ways.
To address the critical drop-off in computer science enrollment numbers in 6th grade, we offer engaging and real-world CS exploratory experiences and curriculum. We sponsor three providers Code.org, ProjectSTEM, and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) CS Academy to meet educator and students needs where they are with a variety of curriculum and educator professional development options.
We know high school is a critical time period for students. Our programming helps students explore careers of the future while providing a clear path from secondary to post-secondary through our scholarship and internship opportunity. Our partners at Code.org, ProjectSTEM and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) CS Academy offer a wide array of introductory and advance curriculum options and teacher training.
Amazon Future Engineer students can boost futures for themselves and their communities. We provide 40K scholarships and a guareenteed internship at Amazon to high school seniors pursuing computer science degrees in college.

Teachers that sign-up to use our sponsored curriculum receive a paid Computer Science Teachers Association Plus (CSTA+) level membership, gain eligibility for our $30,000 Teacher of the Year Award, Amazon Future Engineer Teacher and Classroom swag, and obtain first access and opportunities to pilot cutting edge career and computer science exploration offerings from Amazon Future Engineer.
Indigenous
Advancing Computer Science for Indigenous Students and Communities
We partner with Indigitize Computer Science to support Indigenous students and school districts access culturally responsive CS curriculum and computer science exploration experiences. Indigitize Computer Science was launched in partnership with the One Gen Fund as a new CS initiative launched initially in New Mexico and expanding to Arizona, South Dakota, and other Indigenous communities across the United States.
Through our $30,000 Teacher of the Year Award, we recognize excellence in teaching by honoring and awarding 10 all-star teachers working diligently to help students in underserved and underrepresented communities pursue futures in computer science and robotics.

Recipients will receive $25,000 to expand computer science and/or robotics education at their school, plus an additional $5,000 teacher cash award.
