Wyoming's Solution For Brain Drain? Computer Science

February 14, 2018View for printing

Coal country and computer science country used to be different places. But Wyoming, much like Liz Lemon, is trying to show us that we really can have it all.

In the next few weeks, the Wyoming State Legislature will vote on Senate File 29, which would add computer science (CS) to the state's "common core of knowledge", making it a requirement for K-12 public schools to offer CS education. If it passes, Wyoming would become only the second state in the country to mandate CS education, ahead of neighboring Colorado, ahead of liberal Massachusetts and Vermont, ahead of Silicon Valley's home state of California.
