Over the next decade, seven in 10 new jobs in Pennsylvania will require workers to use a computer and an estimated 300,000 STEM jobs will be available in the commonwealth by 2026. To meet this projected demand, Governor Tom Wolf launched PAsmart, a new initiative to invest in the commonwealth’s existing and future workforce.

Palisades is proud to be a recipient of this grant to help train teachers to implement computer science in their classrooms. Thanks to our Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, Dr. Michael Donnelly for leading the charge! Great work team!
