Three LA Organizations Score Funding From Google For CS Education

Three, local Los Angeles organizations -- DIY Girls, LA Maker Space, and Teens Exploring Technology (TXT), have scored nonprofit funding from Google, as part of the 2016 Google RISE Awards, according to the groups. All three groups help increase access to computer science (CS) for Los Angeles kis and youth. The three are among only 28 organizations, spread across 16 countries, to receive the prestigious award. All three of the groups are helping to overcome the lack of computer science education in local, LA public schools. Each of the group is receiving between $10,000 and $25,000 in a grant for their work.
