Amazon Web Services has partnered with the Virginia community to implement its cloud computing curriculum to select universities within the state, reported Friday.

The company seeks to use the curriculum to grow cloud computing jobs in Virginia through the AWS Educate program.

AWS’ curriculum is comprised of grant initiatives for K-12 computer science programs as well as an online cloud computing course at George Mason University. AWS will initially implement the curriculum to eight institutions, while participating K-12 schools will utilize AWS Educate resources in dual enrollment programs.

“This is about quickly getting into the environment and creating economic development, for your family, your community, the state and for the United States,” said Teresa Carlson, vice president for AWS’ worldwide public sector business and a 2019 Wash100 awardee.
