Re-Envisioning the K-12 Computer Science Pipeline
We have formulated a novel vision for teaching computer science (CS) in K-12 education and are piloting it in Pittsburgh schools, thanks to a partnership with Carnegie Mellon University. Districts face challenges training teachers in computer programming, developing engaging curricula with pointed learning goals, and achieving successful outcomes for students. This partnership utilizes incubators and relies on expertise and support from the university to build a culture of excellence in CS.
