Making quality tech education more accessible and available to educators and high school students

Pilot Program presented by

Start Early For Big Impact

We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality tech education, regardless of where they live or go to school.

Thousands of Missouri high school learners would like to take a high-quality computer science course as part of their core learning requirements. Unfortunately, many schools lack access to an affordable computer science curriculum or staff who feel confident teaching it. Through LaunchCode’s LCHS Program, teachers are receiving curriculum from LaunchCode to prepare them as computer science instructors.

The program encompasses the creation, deployment and evaluation of reconfigured curriculum from our renowned job-focused program to fit a high school schedule and meet state curriculum standards set forth in 2018’s STEM Education bill (HB3). High school teachers from St. Louis public, private, and charter schools have trained with hands-on coding skills, technological pedagogy, and coding curriculum lesson planning to provide accessible education for their junior and senior year high school students. All of this is provided free of charge to students, teachers and schools.

LCHS Training: How It Works

Teachers Learn Skills

First, teachers will complete a section of self-guided education curriculum created by LaunchCode.

Teachers Train Students

Second, teachers go on to teach their new curriculum to students in their classrooms.
