Launched in partnership with Discovery Education in 2017, TCS’ Ignite My Future in School is a free pioneering, transdisciplinary education program for teachers, students, families, and community stakeholders that ignites the spark of curiosity and problem solving through computational thinking.
TCS is proud to announce that we have surpassed our goal to reach 1 million U.S. K-12 students, a full year ahead of our 2022 goal, and also closed in on our target to engage 20,000 teachers.
The Ignite My Future program has now been accessed by students in more than 70 countries through free virtual resources.
