High School Computer Science with Microsoft TEALS

TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) is a FREE Microsoft Philanthropies program that builds sustainable computer science programs in high schools, with a focus on serving students excluded from learning CS because of race, gender, or geography.

The TEALS Program:
✓ Helps classroom teachers learn to teach computer science on their own by pairing them with industry volunteers and proven curricula
✓ Engages students who previously didn’t have access to CS education, increasing the likelihood that they’ll continue their CS education and be more prepared for future employment

TEALS provides

• Rigorous curricula and resources approved by CS educators and industry professionals
• Resources and training to develop diverse and inclusive CS classrooms
• Sustained access to volunteers with deep knowledge of CS and industry experience
• A supportive community that allows teachers to build their subject matter knowledge
• Personalized support from a dedicated Regional Manager
• Remote or in-person volunteer support

The TEALS program is also aligned with the 2-year CTE Software and App Design sequence in Arizona
