Why teach computer science?

As the popularity of coding grows, the equity gap is growing even faster. Fortunately, the solution is one click away. Through long-term professional development, BootUp trains teachers to empower all elementary students as they become creators, collaborators, communicators, and real-world problem-solvers.

BootUp coaches teachers to engage students through easy-to-use, block-based programming languages (Scratch and ScratchJr) and lessons that include interactive stories, games, music, and more. With BootUp, computer science is elementary for all.

No coding experience necessary!
