Hero and Project Description: 

Stith’s innovative teaching idea, “Spreading Coding in Wyoming,” focuses on providing circuitry and coding education for the students at Newcastle High School as well as professional development opportunities for teachers of other schools around the state. With the Voya grant, Stith will be able to purchase the necessary Arduino-based classroom kits and deliver them to schools around the state. Wyoming's Legislature has recently expressed a need and desire to include coding as part of the Wyoming Public School curriculum, as it ranks as one of the lowest in the nation in AP computer science scores. To help support this, Stith will provide mentorship and educational opportunities to go with the kits, offering basic knowledge on circuitry and coding.
