STATE OF NEVADA REQUIREMENTS

Nevada has aligned their computer science curriculum with core ISTE and CSTA topics. 

The teaching of Computer Science and Integrated Technology will become a huge support to both students AND educators as we move into a more active partnership with technology and education.

Computer Science is more than just computer programming. It is computational thinking, logical reasoning, critical thinking, and problem solving. These are tools that our students need to be successful in the digital world they are now living and the future that is to come.
