As I reflect on 2016, there is so much to celebrate. Together, with our partners, we provided access to high-quality computer science programs to more than 1,600 students. We expanded our reach into three new states, and we identified a strategy for awarding college credit to students in our Student WEB CORPS program.
In partnership with the Teaching & Learning Collaborative, we developed an innovative curriculum and professional development model that empowers elementary school teachers to bring computer science into their classrooms in a way that transforms learning.
I am truly grateful to our dedicated volunteers, our passionate and energetic staff, our inspiring Board, and to our donors both large and small, new and longstanding.
Our movement is gaining momentum and stakeholders. I am thankful for all that we have accomplished and look forward to the road ahead!
