Governor Steve Sisolak announced today that Tesla is investing $1 million to support Nevada’s computer science education initiatives.

“Nevada is proud to have Tesla doing business in the state and fulfilling its commitment to the community by promoting STEM education,” Sisolak said. “Our students are our most valuable asset, and I commend Tesla for playing a key role in investing in the next generation of workers and leaders in our state.”

Tesla’s multi-year commitment to computer science education will support the training of more than 3,900 teachers, as well as computer science summits each year, administrator training, and toolkit developments.

“This donation will go a long way in supporting Nevada’s goal of making sure that every student in every school throughout the state has equitable access to computer science education,” said Jhone Ebert, the state’s superintendent of Public Instruction.
