If it's the class students like the most, and also the #1 source of all new wages in the country, why is computer science taught in only 25% of schools? #CSforAll (Survey details: http://bit.ly/1UHbnZi)

Thanks, Stephen Curry for inspiring students to try coding and making apps. Students, post your creations to win a video chat with Stephen (see code.org/challenge to learn how)! Teachers, please pledge to expand CS at your school (code.org/yourschool)! #HourOfCode

This marks the world's largest private sector effort in support of computer science in schools. Today, most of America's largest tech companies unite to address issues of opportunity and diversity facing our nation. Thank you, Accenture, Amazon.com, Facebook, General Motors, Google, Lockheed Martin, Microsoft, Pluralsight, and Salesforce for uniting to support computer science in America’s schools, to expand opportunity for students!

Today, the White House commits $200M/year to expand access and diversity in computer science. The opportunity to learn computer science shouldn’t be determined by the color of a student’s skin or the neighborhood she lives in. This victory for students has been 4 years in the making; a huge thanks to all of our supporters!

Today marks the 3 year anniversary of the Hour of Code, a teacher-led movement to introduce students to at least one hour of computer science and demystify this foundational 21st century subject. As we prepared to kick off the 2016 Hour of Code for Computer Science Education Week, we passed an amazing milestone: 300 million served in 3 years. This doesn't mean 300 million unique students, because many students repeat the tutorials. But we can confidently say that at least 10% of all the students on planet Earth have tried the Hour of Code. To the hundreds of partners and hundreds of thousands of educators who support this campaign, this is an amazing accomplishment.

More info on the methodology behind this number is here: https://code.org/loc
