Code.org Professional Development Programs
Computer Science Discoveries and Principles workshops are offered at no cost to teachers who meet the scholarship requirements and are accepted into the program. Full scholarships are available to teachers from schools with a free and reduced lunch rate of 50% or more.
Thanks to corporate sponsorship, Educate Maine will provide a teacher stipend based on full participation and completion of the year-long professional learning program. The amount of the stipend is contingent on available funding.
