Microsoft TEALS and Code.org Launch Joint Pilot Program

Microsoft’s TEALS program has announced a partnership with Code.org, launching a pilot program to increase support of computer science in U.S. high schools.

TEALS is a grassroots program, supported by Microsoft Philanthropies, that pairs computer science professionals from 200-plus companies across the country with classroom educators to team-teach CS in U.S. high schools. Over two years, the classroom teacher gradually takes over the responsibilities of teaching the course on their own. Code.org is a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of diverse backgrounds.
