The CODEd Academy Story:

As the computer science teacher at West Oakland Middle School, Kennan Scott noticed that his students, who were incredibly engaged during his course, sometimes lacked that same engagement with their other core academic subjects. 

He had a hypothesis that if computational thinking and computer science were integrated into every subject, students would be more engaged across the board, and they’d be better positioned to access careers in tech down the line. 

He also believed that it’s a societal problem for the tech industry to be as homogenous as it is and that preparing his students - who have such a wide range of backgrounds and experiences - for that industry would make us all better off.
