A small but growing number of schools around the country are using computer science, coding language and even games like Minecraft to help students learn everything from math to language skills. In January, the White House recognized the Code To The Future program as the leader in Computer Science Magnet Schools. Therefore, a partnership between Code To The Future and the Westminster School District will help lead the way to capitalize on Computer Science integration as a learning tool.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2020, there will be a one million job gap in the field of computer science. Students are unprepared for these skills that American companies demand. Schools must prepare their students for future needs in the workforce.
“Westminster School District is poised to become a leader in Computer Science Education for the entire Orange County area and a key player nationally,” Andrew Svehaug, CEO of Code To The Future, said. “We are excited about the partnership.”
