1000 Schools

Our Moonshot: Support 1000 Schools by 2021

The 1000 Schools Program is a one-of-a-kind program designed to support the unique learning needs of low-income students taking the first steps in their journey in computer science and technology. GirlsComputingLeague chapter leaders across the US support their local educational centers through professional development, technology access, and 5 years of emerging technology curriculum.

Technology

Technology Access

With our generous technology partners, we will provide students (who qualify for need-based funding) with laptops to enable connection to online curriculum and continued involvment with CS education.

Professional Development

Educator Professional Development

With over 5 years of experience, the GirlsComputingLeague team will equip educators at our parner institutions with the background to support their students in their journeys in technology.

Emerging Technology

Emerging Technology Curriculum

Through our GirlsComputingLeague Scholars Program, short 3-week modules tackling emerging concepts (“What are Self-Driving Cars?” “How do we develop equitable Artificial Intelligence?”) will be taught by talented engineering students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Our Impact

“This year cuts forced us to eliminate the science and computer classes but thanks to this generous support we will be able to continue inspiring students to explore hands-on science. This will allow us to create an after school student robotics club”
