The Code.org Professional Learning Program is a fun and engaging 9-day professional development experience that stretches the entire school year. This program has a $3,000 per teacher price tag, but thanks to a partnership between Educate Maine, the Maine Math and Science Alliance - MMSA -, and Code.org, Maine teachers can access the CS Discoveries and the CS Principles program for only $500 per teacher. It gets, better… Full scholarships are available to educators from districts that need a little extra support to make computer science education a reality for their students! Do you teach in a high needs school, or a school with a diverse student population? Is funding for computer science limited in your district? We have scholarships available for you.
Expenses: The program fee covers the full year-long program including your teaching materials, 9 days of professional development, workshop supplies, your meals, and housing during the 5-day summer workshop. Additional travel costs are not covered.
The curriculum, online student learning platform and year round support are available to your school at no additional charge.
