How the tech industry created a teaching corps for rural schools

Gonzalo Birrueta didn't just like playing video games as a kid; he liked thinking about how they were made. In middle school, he'd experiment with coding, watching YouTube videos for help. But it was easy to lose motivation — he didn't have many people he could talk to about coding in Quincy, a rural town of 7,000 perched above the Columbia River in Central Washington state. Computer science offerings have grown over the past 10 years, but rigorous courses can be hard to come by, especially in rural areas.
