The CS1C@OC Project
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.
