Sponsor: Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS Program

Across the US, only 45% of high schools offer computer science, and in Kansas & Missouri it’s only 26% and 38% respectively. The TEALS Program is working to change this.

Join engineers from hundreds of companies to teach computer science with TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools). Microsoft TEALS Program operates in 30 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and British Columbia with over 1,800 volunteers from 800 companies, serving 21,000 students. TEALS exists because many high schools want to offer computer science but most don’t have teachers trained to teach it. To fill this gap, TEALS volunteers work with classroom teachers to team-teach students, and equip those teachers with the knowledge to teach students on their own.
