Code.org, a non-profit sponsored by corporate giants including Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and LinkedIn, is dedicated to expanding the teaching of computer science in schools. Further, they seek to increase participation in computer science by women and underrepresented groups of students. "We believe computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra."
The site has something for everyone, from beginner tutorials that use gaming formats to introduce in simple terms what coding is, to free online courses in computer science offered by some of the world's best universities. Educators interested in teaching computer programming can join the site and add their students for free without the need for students to use personal email accounts. Teachers can use the entire 20 hour course or pick and choose which lessons to use as part of a computer science class. Students can even access their accounts from home using a computer or mobile device. This is one site that has something for everyone!
