student using CodePen in a NYC school

We’re all excited to see CodePen in New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s video announcing the city’s new “Computer Science for All” goal! Check us out at 0:35 and 3:03:

By 2025, all NYC public schools will be required to offer computer science classes to students. It’s an ambitious goal, and one of the major challenges the city faces is the need for qualified teachers.

From the New York Times coverage of the announcement:

Schools that have begun to incorporate computer science say the biggest challenges have been finding people qualified to teach it, and adding yet another requirement to the mountain of skills that students already need to graduate. The National Science Foundation has said it plans to train 10,000 teachers to teach computer science.

Could you be one of those future teachers?
