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.
By the Numbers
- 7 courses developed
- 41 teachers trained
- 1837 current students
- Implemented in 30 schools across 6 districts in Louisiana
Why Computer Science?Louisiana currently ranks last in computer science and computational thinking education with only 16% of public schools teaching these classes.
