Code.org® is a nonprofit dedicated to the vision that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn computer science as a K-12 foundational subject, like biology, physics, or algebra. We expand access to computer science in schools, focusing on increasing participation by young women and students from underrepresented groups.
We work across the education spectrum designing curricula, training teachers, partnering with school administrators and education authorities, helping change government policies, and running campaigns to break stereotypes.
Code.org is the largest provider of CS curricula globally, our platform is used in 190+ countries, and our courses are accessible and engaging for students of all levels. We prepare teachers from all backgrounds to teach computer science, and our professional learning programs include sessions on recruiting without bias and creating positive classroom environments. Code.org works with global and local policymakers to include computer science as a fundamental part of the K-12 education system.
Code.org was launched in 2013 by twin brothers Hadi and Ali Partovi with a video promoting computer science. It became #1 on YouTube for a day, and 15,000 schools contacted us for help. We created the Hour of Code campaign, which has reached over 15% of all students worldwide, and our platform has 80 million students and 2.4 million teachers using our courses. This video looks back at a decade of impact as Code.org looks ahead to creating opportunities for all within a rapidly changing education landscape.
