Google for Education will partner with Teach for America in an effort to introduce coding and other aspects of computer science into more classrooms throughout the country:
Joining forces with Teach for America (TFA) is a natural fit, since one-third of corps members currently teach a STEM subject. Together, we’ll be able to bring CS First to even more classrooms across the US and help shift students’ relationship with computer science. One 7th grader says of his first experience: “Today I learned how to lay an underlying track on a song or music video. My favorite hip hop and rap artists do the same thing! Today was the best learning experience.”
