COMPUTER SCIENCE PARTNERS

 

CODE.ORG

A key partnership SVEF  has is with Code.org, a leader in computer science outreach and official sponsor of the nation-wide Hour of Code. Every December, CSI organizes Hour of Code and Code Night events in schools across the Bay Area.

CSI also supports teachers in computer science through Code.org professional development. We are excited to host our fifth computer science cohort for the 2020-2021 school year. Over 125 teachers from over 35 Bay Area school districts have participated in Computer Science Discoveries and Computer Science Principles training with SVEF!
