There is a growing need for computer science education in K-12 schools. Statistics indicate that computer science based professions make up 2/3 of projected new jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). In addition, nine in ten parents want their child to study computer science, but only one in four schools teach computer programming. Not only is there a need for computer science teachers to have a strong foundation to teach these courses, but coding and programming principles are trickling across content areas at all K-12 levels. Are you prepared to meet the demand? Curriki has two FREE options from Oracle Academy to help meet your needs!
