With 127 Organizations Nationwide, BootUp PD Makes New Commitment to Expand Computer Science Education In Chattanooga, TN
The market for computer science professionals is projected to grow twice as fast as the rest of the labor market over the next few years, giving students another career field to work towards. Castle Rock Elementary will begin exposing their students to the field at a young age after being chosen as one of 1,000 elementary schools that will benefit from Amazon’s Future Engineer + BootUp PD's sponsorship program.
Amazon plans to fund computer science education and teacher professional development for 60 Houston Independent School District (HISD) elementary schools — impacting more than 32,000 students from underserved communities as part of its Amazon Future Engineer program. Amazon is teaming up with BootUp PD, a nonprofit professional development provider specializing in elementary school education, to bring computer science to each school.
