Amazon wants to get more kids thinking about becoming computer engineers. The company launched a program Thursday (1 November) that aims to teach more than 10 million students a year how to code. Amazon said it will pay for summer camps, teacher training, and other initiatives to benefit kids and young adults from low-income families who might not have learned to code otherwise. It hopes the programs spur more black, Hispanic, and female students to study computer science.
