AWS Educate and PLTW: Delivering Computer Science Education to Students Across the Country
Strengthening the Workforce Pipeline of Tomorrow
AWS Educate and PLTW started collaborating in 2019 to address the increasing demand for cybersecurity professionals by bringing the necessary curriculum to more students. PLTW and AWS Educate are focused on ensuring all students have access to enhanced learning environments by building infrastructure for low-tech schools to access app streams and other education programs that integrate technology. The collaboration also includes no cost access to the AWS Console for PLTW teachers and students, the ability to complete industry badges for PLTW students, and the integration of cloud technology concepts into PLTW courses.
Working with organizations like Project Lead The Way enables us to extend the benefits of cloud computing to students across the United States, while creating on-ramps to future careers in the cloud. The integration of AWS Educate into PLTW’s hands-on courses will help give students opportunities to discover, learn, and apply cloud computing in the classroom. We applaud PLTW for innovating on behalf of their educators and students.
