CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A legislative committee is recommending a change in Wyoming law to allow high school students to take computer science in place of one of the three science classes currently required for graduation.

Republican Rep. Albert Sommers, of Pinedale, says students also could choose to take computer science in place of a higher math requirement for the Hathaway Success Curriculum.

Sommers says the Select Committee on School Finance Recalibration also is recommending the addition of computational thinking to replace keyboarding in the state’s common core of skills.

He tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle that the recommendation is expected to be proposed to the full Legislature when it meets next year.
