Sarah Guthals    

Independent Contractor at GitHub, Co-Founder at ThoughtSTEM

I am currently an independent contractor for GitHub's Social Impact team. In this position I will be designing, building, and testing a new GitHub product that will engage young children online in really neat ways.

I have my PhD from UCSD in Computer Science with a focus on Computer Science Education. I was the CTO and Co-Founder of ThoughtSTEM, where I was the Product Manager for multiple teams at ThoughtSTEM, leading multi-disciplinary teams to increase the usability and social experience of ThoughtSTEM's products.

I am also working on computer science education curriculum, pedagogies and tools/techniques. Dr. Beth Simon has been a piloter for the new AP CS Principles course at UCSD. Since 2010 I been aiding her in creating a course for non-CS majors to learn computational thinking and communication. Through this, not only have I helped with curriculum for UCSD, but I have also help pilot the courses in local high schools. I have also been involved in helping local high school teachers learn the course and how it is taught. I have also expanded from this project and have been teaching younger students (8-9th graders) in Oakhurst, CA and San Diego City Schools a similar curriculum. This project is very inspiring and engaging and I can't wait to see more high schools offering computer science in the future.
