BRBytes was formed through a Research Practitioner Partnership between East Baton Rouge Parish School System (EBRPSS) and Louisiana State University (LSU) to bridge the gap in computer science and computational thinking education in Louisiana. The program does this by developing and implementing several middle and high school courses in EBRPSS and surrounding school districts.
What We Offer
The BRBytes curriculum offers an array of courses that teach students skills to be successful in the 21st century job market. These courses fit the interests of a variety of students by providing education on different subjects, such as cybersecurity, programming, and data manipulation and analysis.
Computer Science in Louisiana Schools
Computer and mathematical occupations are projected to have the largest 10-year growth in Louisiana. However, currently only 16% of public schools are teaching computer science courses. BRBytes is working to expand the reach of computer science until all Louisiana public schools offer these courses.
