The Cyber Pipeline program is part of the larger K-State Computational Core program. The goal of the Cyber Pipeline program is to make quality computer science education available to all high school students at little or no cost to them. The Cyber Pipeline curriculum uses the basic Computational Core state-of-the-art curriculum using the latest technologies and educational practices. And best of all, the curriculum is completely free!
However, the Cyber Pipeline program also provides innovative online instruction that includes video, text, and automatically graded hands-on exercises and projects. The curriculum is designed to use lectures and text from K-State faculty as well as in class activities and examples led by high school teachers.
Since qualified computer science teachers are hard to find, the Cyber Pipeline program also provides a teacher training program as well. We are plan to kick off our a summer teacher training program in summer 2021, which will include a 5-6-week program where high school teachers go through the course material individually and have weekly interactive sessions where they can discuss the material, share teaching strategies, and more with K-State faculty and other teachers. There will also be a teacher's guide with additional teaching strategies and examples that teachers can use in the classroom.
