“As a teacher of Career and Technical Education, I found Paradigm Shift's workshop to be a valuable resource for my own instruction. Student attendees were 100% engaged from start to finish. I would be happy to host them again in the future”
A Group of Creative UC Berkeley Students
We are a group of UC Berkeley students tired of the status quo, tired of the fact that roughly 90% of students will not be exposed to computer science before college, if at all. In our day and age, that's simply unacceptable.
In November 2015, we banded together to create Paradigm Shift, a computer science curriculum creation and distribution social venture.
Excite as Many Students as Possible About Computer Science in the Most Budget Friendly Way for Schools.
Unlike traditional methods of learning computer science (online classes, private tutors, summer camps, etc.) which require students to seek out the resources, we bring computer science to the students, in their very own school and classrooms.
