AWS Educate is Amazon's global initiative to provide students with resources for building skills in cloud technology. Through Edhesive, students and teachers get special access to AWS Educate's resources and promotional credits.
The AWS Educate platform introduces students to cloud computing, data science, application development, and other relevant topics and career pathways. The site is full of supplemental resources that teachers can use for fast learners in their classroom, or for students to explore on their own outside of school. With a focus on real-world, applied learning experiences, AWS Educate offers students access to self-paced content designed to introduce cloud computing technologies that drive innovation in fields such as artificial intelligence, voice and facial recognition, gaming, medical advancements, and more.
Students and AWS Educate
The content in AWS Educate is designed to introduce students to cloud computing basics through interactive challenges and hands-on activities. Students can earn Cloud Inventor, Cloud Explorer, and Cloud Builder badges through fun interactive content and knowledge checks. Other additional badges can be obtained as they complete more learning opportunities, including advanced digital badges that showcase their cloud skills.

Teachers and AWS Educate
At this time, all AWS Educate accounts made through Edhesive are student accounts. We hope to be able to offer Educator accounts later in the year, however, they are not available at this time.
