In an effort to increase the number of certified computer science teachers in Texas, the University of Texas at Austin Center for STEM Education is offering a free online version of the WeTeach_CS Certification Preparation course. This course launches June 14, and registration is available now.
WeTeach_CS Certification Prep is a comprehensive, six-week program that prepares educators to take and pass the CS certification test. It reviews all of the main concepts covered in the three certification domains: Software Design and Development, Programming Language topics, and Technology Applications. Teachers with at least some prior experience in coding or programming interested in becoming certified to teach Grades 8-12 Computer Science are eligible to attend.
After the Computer Science certification test is passed and teachers have applied for the certification, a $1,000 stipend will be awarded by the Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) thanks to support from 100Kin10 and the TEA.
