Google funding a program “Computer Science for High School (CS4HS)” — a workshop for high and middle school computer science teachers that introduces new concepts in computing and how to teach them. The ultimate goals are to “train the trainer,” develop a thriving community of high school CS teachers, and spread the word about the awe and beauty of computing.
“This summer, we’re funding 20 workshops at colleges across U.S. and will sponsor another 14 in Europe, Middle East and Africa. If each workshop in the U.S. has an average of 20 teachers in attendance, and each of them teaches 90 students in a year, that means that the workshops have the potential to make a difference for 36,000 students—an important start,” noted Google.
