Abstract

As technology becomes a more influential part of our everyday life the need for those skilled in computer science increases. With concerns over the diversity and representation of the computer science pipeline, companies and organizations are stepping up to support teachers in elementary, middle and high schools to help prepare the next generation of programmers and technology workers. This chapter will describe efforts from the tech industry to support teachers in teaching computer science including support of consortia like Code.org, and developing curricula and training. It will also outline efforts working with organizations to train and place computer science professionals in K12 classes to volunteer, teach and provide role models to future computer scientists.
