Harmony School of Science-Austin has now began the implementation of computer science courses to K-5 graders due to the the hard work from Technology Teacher, Mr. Ryan Torbey. He says the inspiration to teach computer science to such young children comes from the empowerment that he feels it gives kids. “My belief is that Computer Science education should be universal, and the first step in making that change is having the mindset that computer science is for everyone” says Ryan. Mr. Torbey believes his students are excited about computer science because computer science education is giving them the power to create video games and websites. An active advocate for computer science, Ryan would like to see states adopt K-12 computer science standards that would allow more courses to be created and offered to students. We are thankful for teachers like Mr. Torbey, who works endlessly to provide his students with the best possible education.
