About WeTeach_CS Certification Prep

WeTeach_CS Certification Prep will provide an overview of the educator competencies required of all teachers to become certified in Grades 8-12 Computer Science. This certification is necessary to teach courses such as Computer Science I, II or III, Fundamentals of Computer Science, or AP Computer Science A. Course instructors will address several competencies in depth and link attendees to additional resources that will help to prepare them to take the TExES CS 8-12 Certification Test.

The cost for each WeTeach_CS Certification Prep Face-to-Face workshop is $120 per participant and participants may be eligible for accommodations and travel reimbursements from the Center for STEM Education at UT Austin. See each event page for details.
