I just donated to the below campaign -- the folks involved are both
motivated and capable, and I'm confident that they'll make a big impact if
we get them the resources they need.
Director | Code the Change <https://codethechange.org> - ask me how you can
help the CS for Social Change movement!
Teacher | CS1U: Practical Unix <http://cs1u.stanford.edu> - videos and
exercises are available free online!

Subject: CodeHS Crowdfunding Campaign -- CS in HS
To: Sam King <samking at cs.stanford.edu>
We just launched a crowdfunding campaign for CodeHS called CS in HS to
teach 1,000 high school students to code in the next six months. Was
wondering if you could share our campaign with some of your lists.
CodeHS <http://codehs.com/> is a site to teach computer science to high
schoolers. We are launching a crowdfunding campaign called
the large goal to bring computer science to every high school, and with the
specific goal to teach 1,000 high school students to program in the next
six months. Almost no high schools in the country offer CS, but computer
science education is critical for the jobs of the future. Everyone gets
stuck when learning to program, and the focus of CodeHS is providing help
from real people along the way.
If you believe CS should be in HS, then we need your help. There are lots
of ways you can help
- Contribute to the campaign at indiegogo.com/csinhs
- Spread the word about the campaign here: www.csinhs.com
- Record a video sharing "why you should learn to code"
Contact us with any questions. Jeremy Keeshin and Zach Galant,
team at codehs.com
