Code.org is a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented youth. Our vision is that every student in every school has the opportunity to learn computer science. We created the Hour of Code, which has already been done over 1 billion times in 180 countries. We have built more than 400 hours of lessons for K12 students in our platform and we currently have over 45 million unique users around the globe. We are working with our network of partners to support students at home impacted by school closures, mainly by leveraging our creative, engaging and self-guided online curriculum. We also have unplugged activities and content that can be used offline for those without connectivity, as well as lessons delivered through videos. We have content in over 45 languages.
