Computer Science For All

Google has been sponsoring us to promote the high school Computer Science education in West Virginia. We started with a very small group of high school teachers in 2013. So far, more than 100 West Virginia k12 teachers have completed our online training on Computer Science. In December 2017, Google celebrated their 10 year global impact in Computer Science education. Our success story of promoting Computer Science education in rural West Virginia was showcased in the celebration.
