“Community-based strategies that guide and inform efforts to remove barriers to STEM education are more vital than ever before,” said Kalisha Davis, CS Equity Curriculum Project Director, Kapor Center. “Kapor Center is pleased to partner with CSforALL’s Accelerator Cohort in Detroit to ensure that the needs and perspectives of historically marginalized communities are better represented in CS Ed and that high quality learning experiences are an achievable and sustainable goal.”

“To continue advancing accessible and effective computer science and maker education for K-12 students, we must build local ecosystems within communities to ensure that all students, especially underrepresented students are reached,” said Kate Maloney, Executive Director, Infosys Foundation USA. “We look forward to supporting the community of Duluth, MN, as they join a new Cohort from the CSforALL Accelerator.”

“Crusoe is passionate about enabling the future of computing led innovations and empowering our local communities, which starts with our education system.” said Chase Lochmiller, CEO and Co-Founder, Crusoe Energy. “As a Denver based company, we’re thrilled to help bring the CSforALL Accelerator program to the Denver Public School system to advance sustainable and equitable implementation of CS education.”
