Helping all students explore, advance, and succeed with the technical skills of the future

Learning digital skills and computer science helps students thrive in a rapidly changing world. It's our goal to make sure everyone has access to the collaborative, coding, and technical skills that can unlock opportunities in the classroom and beyond.

Computer science opens up possibilities for every student

Educators give their students confidence in computer science (CS), advance their computational thinking skills, and prepare them for the future.

  • We're invested in making education more equitable for students in all communities. Our products and programs aim to address disparities in CS education, especially for students from historically underrepresented communities, and to help equip teachers with computer science resources to prepare their students for their futures.

Google has committed over $240 million to closing computer science education equity gaps.

  • We work alongside communities to close CS education equity gaps, supporting innovative organizations like Scratch, The Hidden Genius Project and CodePath to help all students learn computer science and digital skills, working toward tech-based careers.
