Glassboro High School (GHS) will offer a new computer science class next fall that will be funded by the world's largest online retailer, Amazon. The course, Amazon Future Engineer, is a four-part "childhood-to-career" program that tries to inspire and educate 10 million children and young adults to grow an interest in computer science and coding. Students do not have to be apart of GHS's STEM/BIOMED Academy to sign up for the new course.
Through funding from Amazon, the course curriculum will be provided by Edhesive. All the students in the program will be given free membership to AWS Educate, which gives students access to coding projects and content to learn about cloud computing. GHS is one of 1,000 high schools across the United States signed up for the Amazon Future Engineer program.
