Congratulations to middle school technology teacher, Mrs. Trout, for being nominated for a scholarship to attend several workshops in a professional learning program provided by Code.org®. These workshops prepare educators to teach the Computer Science Discoveries curriculum using Code.org®, the highest-rated, most broadly used course pathway for computer science. The Computer Science Discoveries course takes a wide lens on computer science by covering topics such as programming, physical computing, HTML/CSS, and data.
Code.org® is a nonprofit organization dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Their goal is for every student in every school to have an opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. Code.org® is supported by generous donors including Amazon, Facebook, Google, the Infosys Foundation, Microsoft, and many more.
