The TEALS program has a ten-year proven track record of bringing computer science programs to high schools by partnering technology industry professionals with classroom educators to team-teach computer science classes.

KSSB and TEALS created this course with students who are blind/low vision in mind, working closely with a community of adults who are B/VI. The class will cover variables, outputs, methods, loops, if/else statements, and special topics. The class will be offered remotely. We are excited to bring this free class to students who are B/VI in Kansas and Missouri.
