The Utah Exploring Computer Science Initiative
The Utah Exploring Computer Science Initiative will implement a new one-semester computer science course in high schools throughout the state of Utah. The curriculum will be modeled on the LAUSD Exploring Computer Science curriculum. Over three years, the project will prepare and support 100 teachers with summer professional development workshops, monthly meetings held during the academic year, a mentoring program, and a supportive online community. This project is a partnership between Westminster College of Salt Lake City, Brigham Young University and the Utah State Office of Education.
