Exploring Computer Science is a nationally recognized curriculum developed with the support of the National Science Foundation. It is being implemented in districts across the country, most widely in the L.A. Unified School District with over 6,000 students served.
The Exploring Computer Science curriculum, which all participants will have the opportunity to teach in the fall of 2014, is designed to provide students with an engaging introduction to fundamental computing concepts. The program aims to broaden student participation in computer science, especially for females and other underrepresented groups. Exploring Computer Science has 6 units, although only the first 4 units are mandatory. The units focus on human-computer interaction, problem-solving, web design, programming, big data, and robotics.
