Increasingly, the world we live in is run by computer code. Teaching code in elementary school develops students into logical thinkers, problem solvers, and communicators. BootUp implements coding programs to entire districts at the elementary level in order to include ALL students, especially girls and students of color.
BootUp is a breakthrough computer science implementation and teacher training program that focuses on age-appropriate curriculum and important computational thinking skills. At the primary level, students learn the ABCs of coding using block-based programming mini-languages. In their projects, students use decomposition, abstraction, data representation, and other structures to create algorithmic solutions for complicated problems.
ALL elementary students will learn to code, and we’ll empower teachers to do it.
We support and empower teachers and implement elementary coding programs nationwide in order to reach ALL students, creating equitable access to 21st-century skills.
