“TEALS is the gold standard. we’ve been trying to get them in Wisconsin for years.”
— Dennis Brylow, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at Marquette University and Co-chair of the Wisconsin Computer Science Teaching Standards Committee
When Milwaukee Institute began working with Microsoft TEALS in early 2016, there were no Wisconsin schools participating in the program. With our help recruiting schools and volunteers, TEALS is now more than 40 classrooms in the state. TEALS recruits local IT professionals to co-teach with high school teachers interested in teaching computer science. The goal is for TEALS teachers to be able to teach the computer science classes on their own within two or three years. In the digital age, more computer science expertise means more innovation.
