Google South Carolina’s CS First Heads Back to School
Published:

One year ago, a team of Googlers started working with a handful of schools in South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Today, CS First has continued rolling out to new schools across the nation as a full-blown computer science toolkit that is inspiring students across America.

 

From Charleston to San Francisco, 1,400+ students have taken part in more than 100 unique programs.  What’s more, there isn’t a cost for students to take part in CS First. Google’s teaching fellows who work at South Carolina’s Berkeley County Data Center design the clubs and volunteers organize and implement the clubs in their local communities.  

 

As students head back to school around the country this fall, thousands more will experience success like two South Carolina students featured in Google’s new CS First video (http://files.cs-first.com/promo.mp4). Micah says the club helped him decide what he wants to be when he grows up.  “The main thing I want to do is be an animator and make video games… because I want to do something amazing.” Megan Clark agreed that computer science is now more important than ever, “A lot of careers incorporate computer science, which a lot of people don’t know.”

 

The response from school administrators has been equally enthusiastic. “We have to give students access to amazing opportunities,” according to Kevin Smith, Principal at Charleston’s C.E. Williams Middle School. “CS First for our school has been an opportunity for students to engage curriculum and computer science in a way they have never even seen it… it’s opened up student’s horizons.”

 
New CS First clubs are starting across South Carolina this fall as well.  Where, and how many, is determined largely by the number volunteers who want to help.  If you are interested in bringing a computer science club to your school or want to volunteer, visit cs-first.com.
