The teacher was the student Wednesday as Tri-State teachers learned about computer science.

The free workshop put on by Quincy University in partnership with Quincy Area Vocational Technical Center helps teachers learn how to implement computer science into their curriculum.

Associate Professor of Computer Science at Quincy University, Jiang Li said in a digital age it's important for students to have a strong foundation in computer science.

"Computer science and information technology has been changing in our daily lives. In the foreseeable future the majority of jobs will require students to have fundamental skills on computing," said Li. 

The university received a CS4HS grant funded by Google to be able to put the workshop on.
