Google Code Next Evaluation
2015 to 2018

Google has invited CCT to be the evaluation partner on a new program, Google Code Next (formerly Google CS Edge), which they are developing to expand the diversity of young people pursuing computer science careers. The central focus of the Google Code Next program is to work with African-American and Latino youth to engage them in exploring computer science, encourage them to consider CS as a possible career choice, and help them understand what they need to do to pursue a career in CS.

Google Code Next launched in January 2016, serving two cohorts of 8th-grade students and their parents in Oakland, CA, and Harlem, NY. Code Next will expand to add programing for 9th-grade students in 2017, and will continue to expand its programming until it supports students at every year of high school.
