Episode 53: Shaina Glass and Supporting Computer Science


When I was first introduced to computer programming in 7th grade, we learned to code in MS-DOS. I programmed a snake squirming across the screen, and then I knew I was destined for greatness. Even though I stole the code from a classmate, it was a great feeling. Today’s youth is learning programming languages such as Scratch, Python, and Swift to name a few. These whizkids are building amazing apps and programs in virtual and augmented reality. Shaina Glass takes pride in building the infrastructure to support and grow our future app creators.

Shaina is passionate about incorporating computer science into K-12 education. As well as the CSTA, Shaina is involved in many initiatives such as Code.org that are designed to bring computer programming to underserved populations. Today’s episode discusses why learning computer science is necessary for all students and how any teacher can start teaching this subject. We also discuss the difference between S.T.E.M and S.T.E.A.M and how art and creativity are embedded in basic computer science education.
