Did you know that the number of graduates with technical majors tends to outpace job openings? Computer science (CS) was the sole exception. Yet, only 35% of U.S. high schools teach computer science (State of Computer Science, 2018)
Join engineers from hundreds of companies to teach computer science with TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools). Microsoft Philanthropies 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.
