With the next TExES 241 CS 8-12 certification exam window set for December 4-9, the best time to get prepared is now!

But you have to act soon, there are only 40 seats in this workshop and our Certification Prep Face-2-Face events have been known to sell out. Register Today!
Share the achievements of any teacher—including your own—student, school, administrator, counselor, or organization, etc. (you get the idea), who has had a positive impact on Computer Science education in your community with Code.org and you could be recognized at the Computer Science Education Week 2017 kickoff event in Palo Alto, CA on December 4th!
WeTeach_CS is thrilled to be partnering with Oracle Academy again to offer the popular Keep Calm and Java On virtual courses again this fall–for free! But interested teachers need to hurry, because registration closes on September 12th.
What can Counselors and Administrators do to increase student access to Computer Science classes and career pathways? Computer Science Training for Counselors & Administrators participants will learn about the national and local technology landscape, who is (and is not) involved in this fast-growing employment sector, and why diverse participation matters. This session will help school teams appreciate what computer science is, what new courses involve, and how these count toward graduation and fit with the larger school program.
