Engage Students With Computer Science
As the Code.org regional partner in Colorado we’re proud to support the initiative of increased awareness around computer science, and the creation of sustainable computer science learning pathways for educators and their students. We are of course able to do this with support from Code.org, as well as other industry leaders that directly connect computer science education with authentic scenarios based around computer science skills.
Our professional experiences are designed to help educators explore the importance of this discipline -- and many other disciplines -- while sparking a passion for computer science in their students. Computer science will be a pivotal part of the future careers our students chase and they need to be prepared for those futures by being introduced to authentic scenarios at a young age.

Why Computer Science?
Computer science drives job growth and innovation throughout our economy and society. Computing occupations are the number 1 source of all new wages in the U.S. and make up two-thirds of all projected new jobs in STEM fields, making Computer Science one of the most in-demand college degrees.
And computing is used all around us and in virtually every field. In other words, it’s foundational knowledge that all students need. Unfortunately, computer science is marginalized throughout education. Fewer than half of U.S. schools offer any computer science courses and only 8% of STEM graduates study it. We need to improve access for all students, including groups who have traditionally been underrepresented.
