PD opportunity – “AP Computer Science Principles”

PD opportunity – “AP Computer Science Principles”

Want to offer AP Computer Science at your school? 

The Michigan Math Science Centers Network, in partnership with Code.org, is bringing professional learning to educators to implement AP Computer Science Principles for high school students.

According to the latest data from The Office of Innovation and Improvement, computer science education is becoming critical:

“By the year 2018, more than half of all science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) jobs are projected to be in computer science-related fields. And those remaining STEM jobs will almost all require significant computational skills. If we want our students to be prepared to thrive in this environment of rapid economic change, we need to start preparing them right now”
