Most students express an interest in a rich understanding of computing and want to learn more about how to create in a computing environment, yet computing classes often appeal to a subset of the student population and lack diversity.
The National Science Foundation(NSF) is helping to fund Oregon high schools interested in adopting a national, equity-based, evidence-supported curriculum called
Exploring Computer Science (ECS).
ECS focuses on developing a welcoming and inclusive environment that is rigorous and engaging. ECS can be used as a foundation for an existing or planned CTE Program of Study(POS) or as a stand-alone course taught by a teacher certified in any subject.
