The Colorado School of Mines has committed to send a group to the Computer Science for All initiative, which includes a summit that the White House will host.

Mines is already a part of the initiative, increasing its work with computer science teachers through 2017. It has a strong collaboration with the Front Range Computer Science Teachers’ Association (CSTA), which seeks to increase K-12 computer science education in Colorado.

Mines plans to recruit, train and engage more than 100 computer science teachers in Colorado. They will learn content and pedagogy for their classrooms over the next 12 months, increasing the Mines’ outreach efforts from last year. In addition, Mines will provide continued support to new computer science teachers in Colorado.

Mines and CSTA will further their collaboration to make a strong computer science teacher community in Colorado. The goal is to provide mutual support as well as opportunities to exchange best practices and curriculum.
