Computer Science 

Computer science is essential for almost every career in today’s world and is key to expanding opportunities for all students. Our mission is to help educators engage K-12 students in computer science through Project-Based Learning (PBL). Our standards-aligned projects help students explore the impacts of computers on our daily lives and excite them about future opportunities.
