We would like your feedback on how the resources should be used. Please take our survey to vote on projects to be funded and/or provide suggestions for projects that would like to see funded. Cost permitting, we will seed the project(s) with the most votes.

Coding for Kids: Free and Cheap Websites That Teach Kids Programming
Basic programming has become an essential skill for grown-ups and children alike. And the benefits of picking up this skill, especially for kids, are huge: Learning how to build simple websites and games helps kids refine their design, logic, and problem-solving abilities. It also allows them to express ideas and creativity in unique ways.

There are a number of FREE and low-cost websites that teach children how to play around with code. We've rounded up a dozen of our favorites:
