The non-profit Code.org wants to give students the opportunity to learn how to code, something that’s not as widespread as you’d perhaps think in today’s technical society.

90% of schools still don’t teach computer science
In the 21st century. Our schools teach kids how to dissect a frog and how weather works. Today, it’s equally fundamental to learn to “dissect an app,” or how the Internet works. Every young person deserves basic knowledge of how the world works around them and how to build technology that’s changing the world.

The goal is to train 10,000 computer science teachers, and through them reach 100 million students across all ages, and get them to try one Hour of Code. To make this come through, Code.org needs $5 million, but you won’t have to pony up all the cash yourself, several corporations are onboard to match donations.

There are other ways to help too:

At its heart, the Hour of Code is a grassroots movement driven by parents, teachers and students who want computer science in schools. Whether you donate to our campaign or not, you can still help make history. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages. No experience needed. Ages 4 to 104.

The perks all help to get the Hour of Code to more students, but there are some nice gifts for your, beside the pleasant fuzzy feeling of helping fellow humans out.

Favorite perk ($80)

Code.org Hat + Laptop Sticker Change

At $80, you’ll bring the Hour of Code to 2000 students + fund 20 elementary students to take a computer science course We’ll send you a special-edition Code.org hat (as worn by Ashton Kutcher) that’s available for our campaign contributors only.
