The program, called "Computer Science for All: Fundamentals for Our Future," is aimed at preparing students for the future careers.
The goal is for all students, even those in elementary and in the poorest neighborhood schools, to have some exposure to computer science, building a stronger workforce that has a larger number of minority and female employees.
New York City joins at least two other American cities that have recently committed to computer science education for all students. A recent survey through Gallup and Google showed that schools across the nation are lacking in computer science education, despite the explosive growth in technology and the increasing demand for high-paying computer science jobs.
While a majority of parents, teachers and principals agree computer science education is necessary, a quarter of schools nationwide offer it. ALBUQUERQUE, May 24 (UPI) -- Hundreds of protesters threw rocks and bottles outside of a Donald Trump rally Tuesday evening, police said.

SAN FRANCISCO, May 24 (UPI) -- Millennials, especially those without a college education, are finding that they can't afford to buy a home despite low interest rates. With a history of reliable reporting dating back to 1907, today's UPI is a credible source for the most important stories of the day, continually updatedA A - a one-stop site for U.S. Stanford Engineering professors are setting out to add a new level of interactivity to online education by offering three of the university's most popular computer science classes for free.
Computer Science professor Andrew Ng uses tablet-recording technology he developed to instantly display notes for his interactive video lecture. Stanford Engineering professors are offering three of the school’s most popular computer science courses for free online this fall, and at the same time launching an experiment that could transform the way online education is delivered. The professors are taking technologies designed to enhance learning for Stanford students and extending them to a broad online audience. The professors also hope to extend the benefits of Stanford-style education to those who lack access.
Students in the free courses are expected to read course materials, complete assignments and take quizzes and an exam.
The online courses build on recent innovations by Stanford professors to increase interaction with students. She incorporated questions and quizzes into the videos to keep students thinking about the material and help them learn more effectively.

16 (UPI) -- In the coming decade, all of New York City's 1.1 million public school students will have access to computer science education, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday. The $81 million public-private partnership is expected to bring computer sciences to every one of the some 1,800 public schools in the city, whether the students are learning to build robots or understand basic programming languages.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts by 2020, there will be 1 million more computer-science related jobs. Chicago pledged to make a yearlong computer science course a high school graduation requirement by 2018 and to offer computer science to at least a quarter of elementary school students by then. So far, 26 states across the nation count computer science programs toward a math or science graduation requirement. They are delivering lectures as short, interactive video clips that allow students to progress at their own pace through course materials. Already more than 58,000 people have expressed interest in the artificial intelligence course taught by Sebastian Thrun, a Stanford research professor of computer science and a Google Fellow, and Google Director of Research Peter Norvig.
Thrun said online students should expect to devote at least 12 hours a week to the artificial intelligence course, just as Stanford students do.
She recorded lectures as short videos for students to watch online and used class time to solve problems, host guest lecturers from the technology industry and review material students found difficult. Avoid making unproven statements about the character or actions of any person or organization. For repeat violators, we may refuse the privilege to post or revoke the right to use the site entirely, using any technological, legal, or other means available to enforce these provisions. In June, San Francisco educators voted to offer computer science from preschool through high school, making it mandatory through eighth grade. UPI also provides insightful reports on key topics of geopolitical importance, including energy and security. It became known as UPI after a merger with the International News Service in 1958, which was founded in 1909 by William Randolph Hearst. Even now, Alicia Leon Rios chokes up thinking about that difficult decision more than two decades ago.
Supporters considered it a step toward preparing students for a job market with a high demand for programming jobs. Any language the Legacy Press deems inappropriate, including creative spellings and typographic representations of inappropriate content, is not allowed.
Do not suggest any legal action be taken against any person, including both public figures and private persons. But the nation will need 1.4 million computing jobs, according to projections from the Department of Labor.

Fast-Track To A Degree In the largely Hispanic Salinas Valley, a region known as the "Salad Bowl of the World," young adults like Sanchez are often more likely to imagine a future in agriculture than high-tech. But Sanchez is part of the inaugural class of a three-year, intensive bachelor's degree program in computer science and information technology, called CSIT-In-3. At Stanford University, computer science is the number one major, and 90 percent of undergrads take at least one computer science class. It's jointly run by nearby California State University, Monterey Bay, and Hartnell Community College. In a dimly lit classroom, the glow of computer screens light up the faces of these freshmen. This computer science class doesn't look like many you'd find across the nation — most of the students here are Hispanic and about one-third are women.
To do this, the number of K-12 schools offering computer science needs to increase, according to Roxanne Emadi, a spokesperson for, a nonprofit group working to expand computer science education. Narayanan says this program targets students traditionally underrepresented in computer science, and then removes many of the obstacles that can keep them from graduating on time, or at all.
K-12 schools need more trained computer science teachers, or it can't happen, she said.“Education is a huge, slow-moving bureaucracy that takes time to change, and our education system is behind on computer science,” Emadi said. Hacking The Barriers First, unlike the normal college experience, in which students select their schedule, Narayanan says these students don't have to worry about logistics.
The overall pass rate was 67 percent, with Hispanic students passing at a rate of 45 percent and black students passing at a rate of 36 percent.Seventeen states and the District of Columbia had fewer than 100 students take the test. So by splitting classes between the community college and a four-year school, the price tag of the entire degree is kept at just more than $12,000. It's still too high for many of these students, but most have received full-ride scholarships. Would you send someone to a one-week workshop and have them teach AP Spanish?”Who needs code?K-12 computer science classes teach the basics of computer coding — the various languages programmers use to make computer software work.“Websites, mobile apps and video games are assembled entirely by lines of code. Without that financial help, 18-year-old Mateo Sixtos would have to continue working in the fields while going to school, and that would make finishing in three years unlikely.
Ericson said leaders at Georgia Tech would like to see computer science classes required or expected for all high school students. Joe Welch, Narayanan's CSIT-In-3 co-director, says to stay in the program students must maintain a B average. National leaders from many fields, including Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, and Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, are pushing for more K-12 emphasis on coding, according to quotes gathered by It's a success if they graduate, and Google is standing at the doors." Getting Noticed Connecting with prospective employers is where program organizers are already facing their own challenge.
Welch says in trying to secure summer internships, they're finding many of the brand-name, Silicon Valley tech companies are used to dealing with brand-name schools.
The lowest bar for removing obstacles to computer science education, though, is changing policy to allow computer science to count toward high school graduation in more states, she said.Efforts are also underway to convince colleges and universities to accept high school computer science as a credit toward scholarships and list it as a preferred course for entrance. is partnering with school districts around the nation and funding groups to expand computer science offerings in public schools.
