Computer Science for All

In partnership with the Santa Cruz City School District and ETR (Education, Training and Research), we received a grant from the National Science Foundation to increase equity and inclusion in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in our city schools. These funds enable us to provide computer science curriculum training for teachers to use in their classrooms daily and family code nights at our elementary schools.


Library Initiative

SCEF is partnering with librarians across Santa Cruz City Schools to update their library media centers and book catalogs, improving accessibility for all students.
