The organization’s vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra.

“Thank you so much for the outstanding professional development you have provided me this summer. I really appreciate the support you give me in being the best computer science teacher I can be. My students are going to love what I have learned! I can't wait to show them!

Emily C.

Middle School CS Teacher

“Having Nextech's support has been huge in helping me make this transition to the world of CS. I know there are a lot of programs out there and I have experimented with several of them. But the support and training I have received from Nextech and Code.org is by far the best for me and my students.”

Joann N.

High School CS Teacher

“In the Nextech training, you work with your colleagues to build the confidence to try something new. There's a few people that have maybe taught CS before, but it's a lot of us coming in and learning for the first time. We're actually learning it's okay to mess up. It's okay if you don't know all the answers.”
