Why We Need Your Donations Today

  • Our team of staff educators have to be trained, coached, and equipped with supplies and other resources so that they can be properly prepared to help our partner school districts.
  • Many schools cannot afford the $1,000+ price tag that comes with ordering enough robotics kits for an entire Coding With Robots classroom.
  • We also provide professional development and curriculum design/delivery services for other subjects such as CS Foundations, Web & App Development, Cybersecurity & Networking, Data Science, and more.  We rely on supply kits, books, and other tangible resources to reinforce our preference for tactile-based teaching methods.

Help Us Prepare More K-12 Computer Science Educators  

We need as many as possible pitching in to help us improve the quality and availability of computer science education offerings for our next generation of computer scientists.

Your donation of as little as $7 can help us continue to take next steps with confidence.
