TCS’s goIT engages students from diverse backgrounds in order to bridge the learning curve with STEM, Computer Science, Design Thinking, and Digital Innovation. The program offers an industry developed, customizable curriculum that teaches students 21st century skills necessary for a career in technology. Lessons cover topics like the innovation life cycle, rapid prototyping, design thinking, and more.

Since its inception in the summer of 2020, thousands of students across the globe have participated in TCS’s goIT Monthly Challenge. Students have used key principles from TCS’ flagship STEM education program goIT, to design a tech-based solution and submit a pitch video to the challenge theme. Each month, TCS partners with a globally-minded nonprofit to serve as our SDG ambassador alongside a monthly TCS customer co-host. Together, we have explored topics from ranging from gender equality to systemic racism all the way to protecting life under water. Teacher interest and student engagement in this monthly experience has been tremendous and continues to increase month over month.

In March 2022, TCS and co-hosts Give a Day and Total Energies challenged students to create a digital innovation that encourages people to foster inclusive communities. Muaz C., Sunny C., Amalia P., and Ezekial P. made up the winning team of 6th students from Ms. Nkiru Azza’s class at Scarborough in Toronto, Ontario in Cananda wowed the judges with their submission, Gender Equality Dash, an app that seeks to raise awareness about gender inequality through an obstacle course game. Judges from TCS, Give a Day, and Total Energies were so impressed with the caliber of entries, it was a difficult decision, but ultimately, Team Gender Equality Dash won out.

The goIT Monthly Challenge is a global initiative and is being rolled out across all TCS geographies in the coming months. Visit our goIT Monthly Challenge competition website to learn how you can involve your students or children in upcoming challenges:
