Unleashing Creativity and Equity in K-12 Computer Science Education

Imagine a classroom where every student, regardless of background or ability, gets to dive headfirst into the exciting world of computer science. That's the goal we're chasing with pi-top & Further.


The Need for Equity in Computer Science Education
Despite the growing importance of computer science skills, access remains limited for many K-12 students, perpetuating disparities. To address this, schools must prioritize equity, foster inclusive cultures and provide targeted support. Let's face it – not every kid has had a fair shot at exploring computer science. Whether it's due to where they live, their family's income, or simply not feeling like they belong, too many students are missing out. Our goal is to change that narrative by making computer science accessible, engaging, and downright fun for all.
