CSforPgh details:
Remake Learning has been working for ten years to solve wicked problems.  One of those wicked problems are the lack of computer science in both in and out of school settings and the lack of a diversity in the pipeline for computer science and STEM in the region.

To solve this wicked problem, Remake Learning is bringing together various stakeholders in computer science to work on closing these opportunity gaps. We are calling this collaborative group of stakeholders, CSforPgh, a regional coalition that will be working to bring this essential literacy to every student in our region. This effort is sponsored by the BNY Mellon Foundation.

Our goal is to bring together those working on closing that opportunity gaps for our girls and students of color.
