The UNH STEM Teachers' Collaborative and the STEM Discovery Lab have loved being your Code.org Regional Partner for the last few years. During the summers of 2018 and 2019, we trained nearly 100 New Hampshire teachers in Computer Science (see their pics below)! We are now passing the baton to our wonderful friends in Maine: Educate Maine and the Maine Math and Science Alliance. However, training will be available again for NH teachers in the summer of 2020! Registration is now open for the CS Discoveries (grades 6-10) or CS Principles (grades 9-12) program. The 2020 summer institute will be held at the beautiful Biddeford, Maine campus of the University of New England from June 28 - July 2. The Professional Learning Program is a yearlong commitment, consisting of a four-day, in-person summer institute and four follow-up academic year workshops hosted in Maine. Alternatively, there is a virtual option for academic year support, consisting of eight online sessions. Space for the virtual option is first come, first served.
Maine is excited to serve as the Northern New England host for Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont teachers in summer 2020!
Full scholarships are available to teachers from schools with a free and reduced price meal rate of 50% or more (40% for rural) and who plan to implement the curriculum in the 2020-2021 school year. A limited number of scholarships are available, so apply now!
For teachers who do not receive a scholarship, the cost of the CS Discoveries or CS Principles program is only $1,500 per teacher. That’s 50% off the national cost thanks to generous support from Code.org.
The scholarship or program fee covers teaching materials, workshop supplies, campus accommodation during the 4-day summer institute, and meals during workshops. Additional travel costs are not covered.
The curriculum, online student learning platform, and access to support from the teacher and Code.org community are all included free of charge.
Travel costs, either to the 4-day summer event or to the Academic Year workshops, are not covered.
