Last year’s pilot of SAS Programming for High Schools helped a handful of lucky students to graduate with highly marketable SAS programming skills. Luke Blackwood, a senior at Weaver Academy in Greensboro, NC, credits those skills for his first-place finish in the Future Business Leaders of America’s (FBLA) Desktop Application Programming competition. Deborah Seehorn, Business and Information Technology Education Consultant for the NC Department of Public Instruction, will present June 27th at the Computer Science and Information Technology Symposium in Washington, DC on SAS Programming for High Schools.
Weaver Academy is one of 10 US high schools teaching SAS programming. That number will increase through a partnership with the National Academy Foundation (NAF). With more than 50,000 students in more than 500 academies, NAF is redesigning its Academy of Information Technology curriculum to offer SAS Programming to all academies next fall.
