Today, we proudly release our 2017 Annual Report. Thanks to the support of an amazing group of sponsors, partners and volunteers, TECH CORPS educated, excited and empowered more than 2,200 students – a 44% increase from last year.
More than 160 technology professionals volunteered 1,400+ hours implementing TECH CORPS programs and inspiring our next generation of technology innovators and leaders.
Through our E4Tech and #CutOut4CS programs and in partnership with the Teaching & Learning Collaborative, we provided computer science curriculum and training to 55 elementary school teachers. These teachers received the knowledge and confidence to bring computer science into their classroom in a way that is rigorous and connected to student learning.
This year, we also:
- Developed new programs and introduced new content areas, including Cyber Security and 3D printing
- Increased the number of girls served annually to 41%
- Created additional opportunities for TECH CORPS students to receive college credit or industry-recognized certificates
And finally, this summer, 10% of our instructors were former TECH CORPS students. These brilliant young people are pursuing technology-related degrees, and they are all great examples of why we do the work we do.
As you flip through this report or watch our video, I hope you will join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our students and our ongoing commitment to bringing high-quality computer science learning experiences to all students. We look forward to your continued support as we work to ensure ALL students have access to the technology skills, programs and resources that will enrich their education today and prepare them for college or career tomorrow.
