CHANGE THE FACE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE

Click to 

Only 3% of Black students learn computer science in high school or beyond. Please watch and share this video.

Inspire or encourage a Black student to try computer science, and let them know they belong. If your school doesn’t teach CS, visit http://Code.org/yourschool‚Äč to take action. Together we can change the face of computer science.

The organizations partnering to launch this video are nonprofits led by people of color, all of whom have spent years on broadening participation and access. Thank you for joining Code.org in this work: Afrotech, All Star Code, Black Girls CODE, CodeCrew, CodeHouse, ColorStack, /dev/color, The Hidden Genius Project, INTech Camp for Girls, Kapor Center, Khan Academy, National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), Scratch, SMASH, STEM NOLA, and StreetCode Academy.
