New Coding Curriculum Starts this Fall at Esperanza
Did you know that Google is connected with Esperanza? They gave a $2 million grant to UnidosUS, the largest Hispanic advocacy and civil rights organization in America. Google and UnidosUS noticed the lack of Latinos in the tech industry in the United States, and they wanted to do something about it!
So, they created CASA Code, a brand new coding curriculum specifically created for Latino middle schoolers. Esperanza is one of the few schools chosen to be a part of this program.
Ms. Elizabeth Cirigliano and Ms. Denise Taufalele are the two teachers at the middle school who are teaching the curriculum to our eager students.
