Designed to support middle and high school teachers before and during their first year teaching Computer Science DiscoveriesorComputer Science Principles, the Code.org Professional Learning Program begins with a five-day, in-person summer workshop followed by four additional sessions throughout the year. Best of all? No previous experience teaching computer science is needed.

The scholarship or program fee covers the full year-long program including your teaching materials, workshop supplies, 9 days of professional development, and your meals during workshops. The curriculum, online learning platform, and year-round support are available to your school at no charge

The priority deadline to apply is this month.*Join us or learn more today!

Do you have any questions?We’re here to help! Reply to this email or contact your local partner directly.

Need support from your administrator? Share this flyer with your principal or administrators on how your school can offer computer science next year and support your professional learning.

*The application will remain open after the priority deadline passes.
