The Wichita State University College of Engineering is offering support to Kansas high schools in an effort to help beef up computer science courses, according to a news release.
The college is set to offer grants to 20 high schools in the state this summer to help increase students’ computer coding skills, the release said. Two-week training grants for instructors will be valued at $2,400 each.
In the release, the university notes an “urgent demand” for employees with computer science skills. The grant program is in conjunction with Project Lead the Way, a national nonprofit organization that works to introduce children to computer science, engineering and biomedical sciences coursework.
No more than one teacher per school is eligible for the grant. For a full list of school requirements for the grant program, or for more information, contact Project Lead the Way’s Kansas assistant affiliate director Karen Reynolds at firstname.lastname@example.org.
