Code Missouri computer science education program launches to provide Missouri schools the resources to teach future developers.

CodeHS, a San Francisco-based computer science teaching platform, has announced the rural Missouri school districts who have been selected as partners to participate in Code Missouri for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years.

The pilot school for Code Missouri is Fayette High School, where math teacher Kevin Pekkarinen is teaching the class. According to Kevin, “This was my chance to do more, by introducing rural students, who normally would not have the opportunity, to learn such an important skill and open the door for them to a plethora of career opportunities." These courses give students the opportunity to explore important topics in computing using their own ideas, problem solving skills, and creativity.
