To get more people into computer science and also increase the diversity of those going into the field, Google has rolled out an online destination where anyone can go to find computer science learning opportunities. The new portal on the Google for Education website aims to increase exposure to all kinds of opportunities for one to gain computer science skills—whether through online games, grants, or summer camps—by collecting them in one place and allowing anyone to sort them by age and region for the highest relevance to one’s needs. This development is aimed particularly at students, but anyone interested in the field can take advantage of it.
