Ruskin High School in Kansas City, Mo., is one of 60 schools nationwide piloting a Project Lead the Way course aimed at teaching students about computer coding. "We have to change the way we are educating our students," said Robin Smith, a specialist in talent development at Cerner Corp., which is assisting Ruskin High School with teacher training for the course. "We have to capture their interest (and make technology) not just something I use, but something I can create," she said.
