National Science Foundation

“Computer Science for All” is a national effort announced by the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), led by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Education (ED) in partnership with other federal agencies and private partners, to ensure Computer Science (CS) education is available to all students across the U.S.

NSF’s efforts and the growing momentum for CS education and STEM education broadly taking hold across the country have helped to pave the way for CS for All.

CS for All will leverage and expand NSF and ED investments in CS education and STEM education more broadly. The effort accelerates ongoing efforts to build the knowledge base and capacity for rigorous and engaging CS education in schools across the nation. It will also bring together NSF and other federal agencies with private partners to support professional development for educators to teach CS.
