Computer Science is changing the future—see how it can change yours.

Take a road trip across the country to explore possibilities in computer science and innovation.

Apply by June 14th, 2019

Hi, we’re Roadtrip Nation, and we send people on road trips in our green RV to talk to their heroes, potential mentors, and anyone who’s doing generally awesome stuff. We film it all and then turn it into a show to inspire people to go after their interests.

This October, fueled by the National Science Foundation, we’re sending three young adults interested in computer science on a road trip across the country to meet inspiring professionals working with cutting-edge technology who are pushing past barriers—and pushing the world forward in the process.

Jobs in computer science are growing, but women, African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, and Alaska Natives are underrepresented within the field. This trip is about highlighting exciting careers connected to computer science and innovation—and showing people from minority and underrepresented groups that they belong. If you identify with a group that’s underrepresented in computer science and you’re interested in exploring what’s out there, we want you to come along!
