Denise Hobbs
Regional Director, North America

To continue in our support of K-12 educators, on June 18, 2018, Oracle Academy was a proud sponsor of the third annual WeTeach_CS Summit, in Georgetown, Texas, organized by The University of Texas at Austin’s Center for STEM Education. Created specifically to help K-12 CS educators, the summit offered a lineup of national speakers, panel discussions, and breakout sessions to support computer science education.

Cassi Elliott, North America Regional Marketing Specialist, Oracle Academy, assisted in presenting the UT Austin Computer Science Change Maker and Administrator Awards, sponsored by Oracle Academy.

The UT CS Change Maker Awards were presented to eight Texas high school CS teachers who have made significant impacts on his/her students or the community through CS instruction. Each teacher received an award of $750.

The UT Austin Administrator Awards recognize the contributions of administrators who have gone above and beyond to help expand CS education in their schools, districts, and communities.

Additionally, Oracle Academy Curriculum Developer Lisa Palombo hosted a session featuring our newest workshop, focused on Bloodhound. This workshop incorporates real-life scenarios around the world’s fastest car and encourages students to learn object-oriented programming by coding in a Java language.

Learn more about the Bloodhound project or any of our other workshops on our website.

Oracle is proud to support and partner with educators as we work to bring computer science to all students, everywhere. Congratulations to the award winners, and thank you for making a difference!
