Free Professional Development for AP Computer Science Principles

The MI STEM Advisory Council in cooperation with Code.org is offering FREE professional development (including meals and lodging) to teachers who want to teach AP Computer Science Principles (grades 10-12). Michigan no longer requires a computer science endorsement to teach computer science classes, so any teacher with an interest and aptitude can offer the course. Additionally, the PD will provide interested teachers with the resources needed (including a course curriculum) to teach AP Computer Science Principles this coming fall. AP CSP only has 27 seats remaining, so sign up soon to reserve your seat.
