Gaming start-up Skillsgapp recently announced it had been selected by the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools to provide the educational curriculum for the area. The company will provide its gaming applications to students throughout the year as they teach a curriculum focused on cybersecurity.
“It has been a challenging and unusual year,” said Carol Tsushima, an administrator for the Alliance for Education at San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools. “It has required quite a bit of creativity to keep our students connected, and due to the virtual nature of our events this year, we decided to provide a hands-on, engaging tool that’s both fun for the students and also supports the needs of industry through skill-developing for our students.”
The San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools office works as a middle-man between the 33 school districts in the county and the California Department of Education. San Bernardino is a county located in the southern part of California.
