There are many resources available for funding your school or district's computer science curriculum.
Most teachers and leaders agree that a computer science curriculum is critical in preparing students for a successful future, but it can be a challenge to find the funding necessary to implement one. THE Journal recently published an article with tips on how to find such funding that includes a link to a website where you can easily search for STEM grants by state.
The importance of computational thinking skills can't be understated. Computational thinking skills prepare students to solve real, complex problems beyond the classroom. That's why we're launching Proto, a K-12 computer science curriculum that teaches students these skills through coding, website development, and game design. Students can design and develop games, websites, mobile apps and more while learning how to ideate, test, revise, re-test and launch projects that are completely theirs from end to end. Teachers don't even need a computer science background to use Proto, because it guides the student learning experience through video tutorials, step-by-step instructions and examples.
If you're looking to implement a computer science curriculum but your school or district doesn’t have the funding, know that there are a lot of resources available for you.
