Starting today, we’re acceptation nominations for 2017 WeTeachCS Change Maker Award and Mini-Grants. We know we have some amazing CS teachers out there and we want you to tell us who they are. All nominations must be received by April 28, 2017.
The 2016 WeTeach_CS Summit featured speakers such as Colleen Lewis of Harvey Mudd College and Chris Stephenson of Google, but most of the 56 sessions at the Summit were by CS teachers such as Regan White of Whitesboro High School and Ryan Torbey of Harmony School of Science – Austin. These presenters all had something to share with their fellow CS teachers and we know you do too!
Presentation proposals for the WeTeach_CS Summit to be held June 5-7, 2017 in Austin, TX are now being accepted. 2016’s inaugural WeTeach_CS Summit featured 56 breakout sessions on a variety of CS and related topics. Based on the positive feedback we received, we’re hoping to offer even more sessions for 2017!
2016 saw the successful launch of the first WeTeach_CS Summit, hosted by UT Austin’s Center for STEM Education. A cornerstone of the newly launched WeTeach_CS program, the summit brought together almost 300 teachers, administrators, and practitioners to talk, learn, and share experiences about growing CS education opportunities in Texas.
