“K-12 computer science education is essential knowledge for all of our students in today’s (and tomorrow’s) world,” says Dr. Caitlin McMunn Dooley, Deputy Superintendent for Teaching and Learning.
Georgia Tech's EarSketch project helps students learn computer science by making music. Georgia’s students, and students around the nation and globe, have found EarSketch to be an inviting, fun way to learn computer science in K-12 schools.
“EarSketch accomplishes the amazing things it set out to do: it conveys core CS skills while capturing the attention of all students. It’s my favorite method to introduce computer science,” says Georgia teacher Mike Reilly.
State School Superintendent Richard Woods adds:
“Computers are all around us, and it’s important for students to learn how they work and how to connect computer science education with their lives.”
