Start Your Certification Journey Today!

Sixty percent of all STEM jobs require or involve computing, yet only three percent of Texas High School graduates have taken a computer science course. This is due to limited offerings and a lack of qualified teachers. There are 1.4 million Texas public school students who need YOU to teach Computer Science.

Get Certified!

We Can Help Teachers After Certification Too!

Getting certified in CS is the first step. Improving the quality and diversity of CS courses is an ongoing effort. Find tools, curricula, professional development and other resources to help along the way!
