BoFs: TEALS (Technology Education And Literacy in Schools) - Kevin Wang, TEALS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Did you know that less than 1% of the 4 million AP Exams taken last year was for Computer Science?   

At Apache everyone is a volunteer. You already know how powerful volunteering can be. TEALS (teask12.org) is another way of volunteering, but in this case to build a stronger IT sector in the future by teaching the next generation of Computer Scientists and Software Engineers. Through TEALS you can help high school build sustainable Computer Science programs throughout the country. These students are the future of the IT industry.  By team teaching with an experienced classroom teacher, you will be able to hand-off the course materials and knowledge to them.   They will then be able to maintain and grow a sustainable CS program in the school on their own.

This BoFs is a chance to find out more about TEALS. Come along and ask whatever questions you have, suggest schools looking for help, offer some volunteer time, suggest ways in which the ASF might further help programs like TEALS and much more.
