Microsoft to Invest $75 Million in Computer Science Education

  • By Developer.com Staff

Microsoft has pledged to donate $75 million worth of cash and resources to improve computer science education worldwide. In particular, it hopes to make technical education opportunities available to groups under-represented in the tech industry. It intends to fund various non-profit organizations dedicated to those goals, including its own Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) project.

"Computational thinking is going to be relevant in pretty much every aspect of our economy," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said, "and it's got to start by us saying, 'Let's bring that skill,' so that it's taught in our schools like biology or like chemistry, so that computer science and computational thinking becomes that mainstream. This commitment of ours will fund lots of nonprofit organizations and communities to be able to bring that."
