Update – Early Bird Registration has been extended until January 6, 2017!
The 2017 Texas STEM Conference, being held in Dallas on January 19-21, will kick-off its 10th year with a CS-heavy slate of pre-conference short courses on Thursday morning. The pre-conference will offer attendees their choice of 16 three hour sessions, 12 of which are CS education related. We’re thrilled that the Texas STEM Coalition has chosen to make CS education such important part of this year’s conference, but that’s not even the best part. Attendees who register before January 6, 2017 will not only receive the conference early-bird rate, but they will also receive access to the pre-conference at no additional cost.
During the pre-conference, WeTeach_CS will offer Cert Prep in a Nutshell. This condensed version of the WeTeach_CS Certification Prep Workshop will act as an introduction to CS certification, hitting the highlights of the certification standards, what to expect on the test, and what needs to be done to prepare for this important certification effort, including how to apply for the Certification Incentive Program (CIP). Other organizations offering CS short courses during the pre-conference include, UT Dallas Center for Computer Science Education & Outreach, UT Austin’s Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), UTeach, Texas Instruments, Radio Shack Education Outreach, and more! The main conference will also include a number of CS education sessions.
