Computer Science for all

Computer Science GEER Funds

For the 2022-2023 school year & summer, Governor Brown has committed $6 million in K-12 Computer Science education initiatives. In collaboration with educators from across our region, the STEM Hub will support the following projects:

 

  1. Professional Development for educators - often paired with investments in Computer Science equipment

  2. Regional Lending Library - expansion to include K-12 Computer Science equipment, resources & materials

  3. Regional Computer Science & STEM Weeks - providing ready-to-go kits, materials and resources to all educators

 

The Computer Science GEER Funds granting opportunity will enhance our strategic plan by embedding computer science education into our current projects and expanding STEM learning for all students.  Careful consideration has been taken to ensure our grant proposal addresses the variety of needs for school districts in our region, as each of our district’s computer science education plans and course offerings are in different stages of implementation and development. We have chosen to focus on strategies that ensure equity–both regionally and demographically–and are rooted in potential for system change.

What's Coming in Spring 2023?

  • Tech Clubs - Explore new CS equipment and collaborate with other educators to implement new technology into your classroom. Take our survey and tell us more about the CS technology you want brought into your classroom or school. 

  • Book Club - Join our virtual Book Clubs, where we explore best-practices in Computer Science classroom implementation.  In spring, our Book Clubs will focus on strategies to integrate CS into other content areas with ease.

  • Asynchronous PD - We plan to offer CS training that works with your schedule; complete as much as you have time and availability for!

  • ...plus much more!
