Zero Day Camp’s mission is to broaden the reach of computing education by offering classes for kids and professional development for educators. We also design and disseminate software, tools, and curricula for computer science and robotics education. We believe that “CS4All” should be part of a critical media literacy—one that teaches kids more than just computer and programming skills, but also how to use computer science and digital systems to understand (and change) the world around us.
