Google Code Corps gets kids excited about science

Google Code Corps is a collaboration between the Boys and Girls Club of America, AmeriCorps and Google to provide people with a community science education.

Preston, a volunteer for the program, along with Reggie, a 7th grader in the program, joined us on KTVU the 9 Thursday.

Preston says the program aims to help kids with their science education - geared toward minority kids ages 9 thorugh 14. He says the program is for kids who don't have the opportunity to get the education elsewhere.

Preston says he says major changes in the kids involved in the program, "Some may not have as much exposure to the technology. A lot of growth in the kids.Those that haven't been exposed to computer science before, some kids walk in not knowing how to use a browser, a back button, not knowing how to use a mouse. To come out of it with basic computer science skills, some of the techniques we are teaching them. A lot of growth in a short amount of time."
