WHAT IS COMPUTER SCIENCE?
Computer Science is an academic discipline, distinct from Digital Literacy and Educational Technology, that includes Computing Systems, Networks and the Internet, Data and Analysis, Algorithms and Programming, and Impacts of Computing. Reach aligns its programs to state and national K-12 standards for CS content and practice.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CSforALL
Reach University makes a commitment to provide pre-service teachers in our apprenticeship degree program with an inclusive, comprehensive, compulsory 12-week CS course aligned to state standards in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, and California, reaching 700 teachers by Fall 2024.
“When I first saw what class I was enrolled in this summer, my first thought was 'What in the world is coding?' and 'Why do I need to learn about Computer Science?' I have throughly enjoyed this class and I am so grateful that I was enrolled in CS because I have learned an incredible amount of things that I did not know before and that will only make me a better teacher.”
