Ignite My Future in School, a TCS and Discover Education initiative, has surpassed its goal of impacting 1 million students and continues inspiring and educating young minds around the world.
Reaching 1 million futures
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 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.

Ignite My Future is exactly what it says. It is going to ignite your students’ future and give them a glimpse of what their future can hold and the potential that they have that maybe they [have] never seen before.
The power of computational thinking (CT) lies in the fact that once you show students how to apply it, when solving problems, they will naturally begin to apply CT from that moment forward. They will forever receive the benefits of using CT to find solutions.
IMFIS lessons and TCS Virtual Career Days allow students to make real-world connections to what they are learning in class.
I’ve seen Computational Thinking have a great impact on my students. They are more engaged with what’s happening in the classroom.
