Funding for Nationally Designed Computing Education Curriculum & Professional Development

Most students express an interest in a rich understanding of computing and want to learn more about how to create in a computing environment, yet computing classes often appeal to a subset of the student population and lack diversity.

The National Science Foundation(NSF) is helping to fund Oregon high schools interested in adopting  a national, equity-based, evidence-supported curriculum called
Exploring Computer Science (ECS).

ECS focuses on developing a welcoming and inclusive environment that is rigorous and engaging. ECS can be used as a foundation for an existing or planned CTE Program of Study(POS) or as a stand-alone course taught by a teacher certified in any subject.

Educators can express their interest by clicking here to download the flyer.
