Impacting student lives, especially the underserved

On Code.org, 45% of students are young women, and in the US, 50% are students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and 45% are in high needs schools. Reaching the tens of millions of students in Code.org’s courses and on its platform, the partnership between Microsoft and Code.org works to democratize access to learning AI because all students deserve the opportunity to shape the world they live in — and because creating an equitable and socially just future will take all of us.
