   To reach the goal, Amazon will pay for summer camps,special teacher training and other steps to make kids get the benefits of learning and also for young adults from low income families who might not have learned about coding in computer.

   For this activity, Amazon estimates that around 50 million USD will be spent in this computer science education and also refused to put price tag on this programme named 'Amazon Future Engineer'.

  To benefit the company, other corporations like Facebook and Microsoft, they have also decided to spent cash to bring coding in schools. There's already shortage of computer science engineers and through teaching students how to code will ensure a pipeline of future talent to hire.

  The chief executive of worldwide consumer of Amazon, Jeff Wilke believes that they can hire some of the best students who will go under this program. They will work for Alexa,creating skills for its voice assistant and programming the delivery drones. He also added," We're pretty confident that knowing how to code will be as important as knowing how to read for this jobs of the future. "



  The programme would provide free summer camps from kindergarten to eighth grade students and after school programmes that will be held in Amazon offices around the country. No one but Amazon employees will volunteer and also online classes,lessons and gamers will be provided to the kids.



  Amazon also mentioned that some schools have been testing this program including one of the schools in New York named 'Monrignor Scanlan High School'. They started taking the coding classes online in September where they taught the childrens how to write the codes in games and make animated characters dance.
Science teacher Jennifer Tulipane said that the school applied for this program as they were receiving many feedbacks from college students that they needed a background in computer science feild.
