Charles County Public Schools in Maryland recently joined nearly 10 other school districts across the country by teaming up with Code.org to make computer science part of the K-12 curriculum. "Every student will learn how to think critically, how to analyze a problem and how to come up with a solution," said Kimberly A. Hill, superintendent. Nonprofit Code.org will provide stipends for teacher training, classroom materials and other resources to promote computer science education.
