If you are interested in:
and are teaching at a high school in the USA, we invite you to apply to our summer workshop on attracting and engaging diverse high school students to computer science.
Thanks to the National Science Foundation in support of the TAG project (Teachers Attracting Girls to Computing) and the Tapestry Project (Weaving a Diverse Computing Community), the workshops will be tuition-free with lodging and meals provided.
Honorariums of $1,000 will assist attendees with time and travel costs, and show our appreciation for their participation in the assessment of the workshop program and activities.
The goals of the workshop are to share strategies, practices, and good ideas for teaching computer science. During the workshop, you will also learn about our strong commitment to undergraduate education.
Workshops will be offered across the country at several locations. It is permissible to apply to any or all of the workshops. However, our preference is to maximize the number of different attendees across all workshops.
Development and running of the workshop has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation (grant 1042452) and by the College of St. Scholastica, its School of Education and its Computer Science Department. Their assistance is greatly appreciated.
