The fund Future Programmers is a social initiative that aims to promote programming and technical education in Iceland’s elementary and secondary schools. The main goal is for programming to become a part of the elementary and secondary school curriculum. The Fund supports schools in their endeavour to offer programming courses, donates computer equipment to schools and advises on programming education and training for teachers. Landsbankinn is one of the Fund’s backers along with the Icelandic Banks' Data Centre (RB), the Ministry of Education, CCP, Icelandair and others.
