There is an article in USC news about USC students creating the Google CS first curriculum and bringing it to Columbia.
“If you know how to code, you can get a job,” Hoffman says. “So this could really help to end the poverty cycle for some of the kids in our club. To know that I might be giving them an opportunity that I didn’t have at the same age is rewarding.
“At the very least, we’re showing them that the stereotype of computer science as being really hard or really boring isn’t true.”
CS First clubs could also be a boon to children in rural areas like Manning, S.C., where Goodman grew up.
Remember, you can volunteer to help Google CS first in Columbia or anywhere.
