Computer Science Education Week

Code with Google & Chance the Rapper celebrate student creativity

December 9th - 15th is Computer Science Education Week - an annual event for partners and educators to come together and encourage millions of students to try computer science.

This year, we’re celebrating student coders in Chicago Public Schools alongside Chance the Rapper and his nonprofit, SocialWorks.

Students in Chicago Public Schools have been working on a video game using Scratch, a creative coding platform for kids. The game was recently named by Chance the Rapper as the "official video game" for the song, I Love You So Much.

With support from SocialWorks, CS4ALL in Chicago, and Google.org

Play SuperMe

Recently named the “official video game” for the song, I Love You So Much, SuperMe’s hand drawn heroes hail from Chicago Public Schools - where students across seven elementary and middle schools used code to make the heroes fly through their city - collecting hearts along the way.
