WKYT: Mayor Announces METRO C.A.T.S. Program at Charles Young Center

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 10, 2018) — Mayor Jim Gray has announced that MetroNet and the City of Lexington have partnered to create METRO C.A.T.S., a gig-fueled after-school course for Lexington Traditional Magnet School students (LTMS) at the Charles Young Center. The program, to begin in January, deploys students from the College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky to teach middle school students about digital literacy and, eventually, computer programming.

The C.A.T.S. in the program name stands for Computer Access to Succeed. The team that created the unique program was led by Susie Smith, a UK senior, while she was a Fellow in Mayor Gray’s office during the summer of 2018. Corey Baker, assistant professor of computer science, also played an integral role.
