UNK Cyber Systems Google CS4HS Grant

Computer Science Principles on the Prairie (CSPoP) program - Phase 2

UNK Cyber Systems received funding from Google Inc. Fund of Tides Foundation, Google CS4HS program, for the phase 2 of the “Computer Science Principles on the Prairie” (CSPoP) program. This is second year of a program that consists of a face-to-face workshop, online coursework, and on-going community of practice activities to introduce K-12 teachers to computational thinking and the computer science “big ideas”, as outlined in the AP Computer Science Principles curriculum. The focus will be on incorporating these ideas into existing curriculum as well as in the development of computer science (CS)/ Information Technology (IT) courses for middle and high schools. This program also aims to connect teachers (especially rural teachers) with each other and with computer science experts at the university. (Teacher Welcome Kit is available here.)
