Youth Code Jam is a TEA-approved provider of continuing professional education. TEA Continuing Professional Education Provider Number #902-492.
Special thank you to the 80/20 Foundation for their generous support
helping to keep these workshops free of charge for teachers.
Youth Code Jam is currently applying for funding to participate in the 2018 WeTeach_CS Collaboratives for a second year. If you are interested in applying, you may do so now. Apply here.
Pending grant funding, we will select a cohort of up to 25 teachers to receive 60+ hours of free professional development designed around two pillars:
- preparation to challenge the TExES 241 8-12 Computer Science Certification exam
- innovative ways to introduce computer science across core curriculum
Priority will be given to teachers who are attempting the CS Certification test for the second time and those who are challenging the test for the first time. We may also admit teachers who are looking to expand computer science in the classroom who are already certified or are not planning on getting certified at this time. Applications will be evaluated upon receipt of grant funding and those accepted into the cohort will be notified (early 2018).
