The Computer Science Education Work Group will address critical issues in expanding computer science opportunities for students statewide. The group was established as part of Senate File 274, which former Gov. Branstad signed into law on April 28. The legislation encourages computer science in every Iowa school, establishes computer science standards and creates a computer science professional development fund to help prepare teachers.
