Integrated Computing for Algebra, Physics and Data Science, for all students.

Rated "Accomplished" by

We craft research-based curricular modules for grades 6-12. Our materials reinforce core concepts in math, enabling non-CS teachers to adopt our introductory materials while delivering rigorous and engaging computing content. Our project is based at Brown University.

Our introductory modules can be integrated into a standalone CS course or mainstream classes, and aligns with national and state standards. And since every child takes these classes - regardless of gender, race, or background - Bootstrap is one of the largest providers of formal CS education to girls and underrepresented students nationwide: nearly 50% of our students are African-American or Latin(x), and nearly 45% are girls and young women.

We offer modules in physics, data science, and sophisticated interactive programs, all of which can be integrated into Science, Math, Intro and even AP CS Principles courses. Teachers can mix-and-match content across various modules to fit their needs.

By leveraging the existing network of math, social studies, and science teachers nationwide, Bootstrap is built to scale. We work with school districts across the country, reaching hundreds of teachers and thousands of students each year. Most of our teachers have also attended a Bootstrap Workshop, where they received specialized training to deliver the class.
