Launched in 2013, Code.org® is a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Code.org’s vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. They believe computer science and computer programming should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

Code.org has developed an elementary school curriculum that allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing - at no cost for schools. The courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” activities that require no computer at all. Each lesson may be implemented within a standard 45-50 minute class period. Each course consists of about 20 lessons that may be implemented as one unit or over the course of a semester. Even kindergarten-aged pre-readers can participate.

The courses have been designed for students of all ages, but they reinforce math, science, and English education standards for elementary school students.

Code Studio has three bands of computer science for the elementary school level:
• Course 1: for early-readers, ages 4-6
• Course 2: for beginners, ages 6+
• Course 3: for ages 6+
