Other 2024 Summer Offerings Coming Soon!

We invite you to join us in an exciting opportunity to provide high quality computer science (CS) educational opportunities to our K-12 students. Being hosted June through August 2024, Summer of CS provides participants with access to a range of resources, including in-person and virtual workshops, online resources, and networking opportunities. 

Goal. Summer of CS is the dynamic summer component of Seasons of CS which is designed for educators and school leaders to improve access, equity, and engagement in high-quality computer science education for English-learners, low-income, rural, Black, Latinx, and Indigenous students. Participants receive support from CS education experts, industry professionals, and peers, who can provide guidance implementing engaging curriculum and culturally responsive teaching practices. No prior knowledge in Computer Science is necessary to participate in these virtual, hybrid or in-person trainings!

Grant funded. Summer of CS is funded by the Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG), a State of California program to support professional learning opportunities for educators. By participating in 2024 Summer of CS, California educators can inspire and engage their students in computer science, helping to foster the next generation of tech-savvy leaders in our increasingly digitized world. 

Stipend and Registration Information. Both in-person and virtual workshop offerings are available for all grades K-12. These workshops are FREE. California public school classroom educators and paraprofessionals will receive a daily $250 incentive for active participation in any of the 2024 Summer of CS offerings. Most workshops are 3-day or 5-day workshops, with some exceptions. Registrations are confirmed upon receipt of a signed participation agreement from each registrant and their respective supervisor. There will be a state-wide offering, CSPDWeek, happening July 22-26, 2024 in Anaheim. Please note that private school educators, expanded learning educators, pre-service teachers, and substitute teachers are not eligible under the terms of the Educator Workforce Investment Grant.

Additional Support. We are here to support you throughout the year as you embark on your computer science learning pathway! Since this is a yearlong professional development opportunity, you not only get free access to any 2024 Summer of CS workshop you choose, but you also are guaranteed additional academic year workshops of just-in-time support where you will meet virtually after school with your workshop provider to reinforce, reflect, and extend your learning. Workshop time will be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous time. Synchronous time will be specified by your workshop Facilitator. California public school classroom educators and paraprofessionals will be paid an incentive for ongoing professional learning.
