TEALS Students at DePaul Learning Computer Science

The U.S. is facing a shortage of computer science (CS) graduates. By 2018, there will be 1.5 million CS-related jobs available in the U.S. and only 29% of college graduates to fill them; that means approximately 80,000 jobs requiring a CS degree go unfilled by domestic candidates each and every year.

TEALS (Technology Education And Literacy in Schools), a volunteer network of high technology professionals, aims to help solve this deficit by helping schools grow a sustainable computer science program.

The application process is now open for high schools that want to partner with TEALS for the 2015-16 school year. The deadline for all applications is January 26, 2015. Click here for more information.
