Zero Day Camp’s mission is to broaden the reach of computing education by offering classes for kids and professional development for educators; and by designing and disseminating software, tools, and curricula for computer science and robotics education. We believe that “CS4All” should be part of a critical media literacy where we not just learn the skills of computer programming, but use our understanding of computer science and digital systems to understand (and change) the world around us.
