Computer Science (CS) education in Georgia is undergoing a transformation from a set of high school electives to a comprehensive K-12 discipline. As our society experiences a shift into a widespread digital presence and awareness, our education system must also evolve. Students need to graduate with all the tools necessary to thrive in society; these tools now include a computer science education. CS education encompasses ideas such as digital literacy, digital competency, and computational thinking. This skill set will empower our students to solve many of our societal challenges and participate effectively in this digital age.
New! The next CS Implementation Workshop will be held on a virtual platform June 2021. RSVP: HERE.
The CS4GA Computer Science Capacity Grant is gearing up for its third run! Since 2019, over 60 school systems have been awarded up to $25,000 each to build CS teacher capacity.
