About CS First

CS First is a Google program focused on increasing student access and exposure to Computer Science (CS) Education through after school, in school, and summer programs. Programs are flexible and can be tailored to fit your schedule.

The goal of CS First is to build the CS education capacity of K-12 schools. With that goal in mind, CS First is open to all grade levels. We have piloted programs primarily in grades 4-8,  therefore our current curriculum and materials are mainly targeted towards students in these grades.

CS First is developed by Google, which provides teachers, schools, and volunteers with all the materials needed to lead a CS First program. Staff at local schools set up the programs and have the option to invite volunteers to lead them.

“Ultimately, the only way to get more people into Computer Science is to start early.”

– Larry Page, Google, CEO
