CLARKSTON - According to a recent release, Clarkston High School has been accepted into the Amazon Future Engineer program that will provide support to help expand the Computer Science program by providing industry-leading technology, scholarship opportunities, career connections and field trips for CHS students.
By this fall, more than 1,000 high schools will offer Introductory and Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science courses funded by the Amazon Future Engineer program – part of Amazon’s $50 million investment in computer science and STEM education.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that by 2020 there will be 1.4 million computer-science-related jobs available and only 400,000 computer science graduates with the skills to apply for those jobs. Computer science is the fastest-growing profession within the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) field. Thanks to this partnership Bantam nation will be future ready!
