It’s already November and you know what that means? Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10, 2017) is just one month away! So, now’s the time to sign up and plan an Hour of Code even for your school or community.
The WeTeach_CS Program at UT Austin’s Center for STEM Education will be accepting applications for Computer Science Collaboratives in Texas beginning December 7, 2016. Proposals are due January 9, 2017.
If you know a Texas CS teacher who goes above and beyond on a regular basis or have a project idea that needs a little financial push, then there’s no time to lose! The deadline for all 2017 WeTeach_CS Change Maker Awarrl nominations and WeTeach_CS Mini-Grant applications is April 28, 2017.
If attending WeTeach_CS events has taught us anything here in the office, it’s that Texas has some amazing, dedicated, and creative CS teachers. Then there are those who really stand out as inspirations to their students and their fellow teachers. If you happen to know one of these MVPs of CS education, then let us know by nominating them for one of the 2017 WeTeachCS Change Maker Awards. Or perhaps you have an idea for a class project or after school activity that needs a little seed money to get started, then apply today for one of the 2017 WeTeachCS Mini-Grants.
