Volunteer with TEALS and bring CS into schools!
In 2020 over half of all projected STEM jobs will be in computing.
The number of U.S. total bachelor's degrees increased by more than half over two decades while Computer Science degrees are on the decline now trending towards pre-2000 levels.
Massachusetts is one of 40 states that has not adopted Computer Science Standards for K-12.
In 2012 of the close to 70,000 graduating HS seniors in the state only 559 took the CS AP exam. Of those 559 students only 24 were underrepresented minorities.
Students who take Computer Science courses are not able to count those credits toward satisfying a math or science requirement for graduation.
Support Computer Science in Grades K-12!
