It is interesting that of all the programs referenced as a result this question no one mentioned offering foundation courses in databases, data structures or SQL.   While boring, these systems are the foundation of many business applications that people interact with on a daily basis and the need for skilled employees in these areas has not diminished.

Just curious... how many VT schools are offering CS programs in middle or high school?

Also interesting... only 1 in 10 schools offer computer science nation-wide according to the post.
