CAPE CANAVERAL, FL -- A unique international program pairing computer and software engineers with students is coming to the Space Coast for the first time.
Right now there are millions of unfilled, good paying computer science jobs.
So the goal is to encourage students to learn about the space program and how to write code and use their creativity to solve real STEM problems.
"That’s one of the best things in our global PBL program," TMFGE chairman Jefferson Michaelis said. "You see them struggling a little bit but then our instructors explain it in a different way and then all of a sudden they go, oh I completely understand now. That’s one of the best things for me. Because we love teaching and sharing our love of STEM & Space education with kids all over the world."
