Gray led training workshops for about 550 elementary school teachers across Alabama, including several in Tuscaloosa, in an effort to help teachers introduce computer science concepts into their classrooms.

Dr. Jeff Gray, professor of computer science at The University of Alabama, was part of a summit to gauge the progress of President Barack Obama’s initiative to expand computer science education to primary and secondary schools.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
