To help more New York City teachers get comfortable teaching computer science, Cornell Tech offers a 'safety net'
Brittany Ciana panicked when she learned she would have to teach computer science in addition to fifth-grade math. Her mind raced back to her last experience with the subject: a frustrating programming class in high school. That reluctance seemed far behind her on a recent spring day, when Ciana zipped through a lesson on how to program micro-controllers at P.S./I.S. 217 on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan. After quickly quizzing her class on the components of a computer, Ciana drifted from student to student to help them make palm-sized chips flash their names in red lights.
