Help us close the computer science gap
Learning computer science empowers young people to compete in the global economy and pursue careers across all sectors because it teaches students computational thinking and problem solving skills applicable in any industry.
Yet, computer science is taught in only 1 of 4 high schools nationwide.
TEALS is increasing access to CS education
TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) helps high schools build sustainable computer science programs by pairing trained computer science professionals – from across the tech industry – with classroom teachers to team-teach computer science in high schools throughout the US. TEALS volunteers and partner teachers create a ripple effect, impacting the students they teach, and the many students who will study CS in the future. Started in 2009 by Microsoft employee Kevin Wang who developed and ran the program in his spare time, TEALS was embraced and adopted by Microsoft in 2011.
