The CS1C@OC Project

The CS1C@OC Project
In collaboration with the Orange County Department of Education and funded by the National Science Foundation, the University of California Irvine (UCI) has undertaken a project, called CS1C@OC, to provide in-service teachers in Orange County with a program of study that will satisfy the new California Supplementary Authorization in Computer Science.
Despite the imperative need for students to learn computer science skills, few K-12 students have access to rigorous CS courses. CS remains privileged knowledge, and improving access to this knowledge is one of the major economic security and social justice issues of the 21st century. By providing this CS teacher preparation program, we strive to enhance the learning experiences of computer science students.

CS Education is imperative

An understanding of computer science is becoming increasingly essential in today’s world. Our national competitiveness depends upon our ability to educate our children—and that includes our girls—in this critical field.

Sheryl Sandberg COO, Facebook

CS Education is for all

Ensuring that our nation's urban and rural children have the chance to become proficient in computer science is a sure way to set them on a trajectory to great career options. We need to do this to close the digital divide and level the playing field.
