Learn. Teach. Advocate.

Participants engage as learners, teachers, and CS champions (advocates) as they develop and implement a small-scale pilot project for CS education.


Participants will:

  1. Access and use the K-12 CS Framework and CSTA standards

  2. Initiate and reflect on a small-scale implementation pilot

  3. Recognize and create a plan to close equity gaps in CS education, specifically for students with disabilities and other historically underrepresented populations, such as students of color and female students

  4. Leverage community and stakeholder partnerships

  5. Articulate the need for CS in education and our communities
