  • Company Description:

    Computer Science for Maine (CS4Maine) believes that all Maine students, including those who have traditionally been underrepresented, should have access to computer science education. At a time when computing occupations are the number one source of all new wages in the U.S., we believe that Maine students need the same access to high-quality computer science education as students from other states.

    Our goal is to ensure that computer science is a subject area offered to all Maine K-12 students.

    To accomplish our goal, we want Maine to meet the following objectives:

    • Fund computer science professional development for teachers
    • Offer computer science in all high schools by 2022
    • Offer computer science learning opportunities in all grade levels by 2025
    • Allow computer science courses to count toward high school graduation requirements across the state
    • Determine and implement appropriate K-12 computer science standards
