With many countries starting to focus on teaching computer science and coding in schools it is critical that we have development opportunities for teachers to equip and inspire them with the skills they need to encourage the next generation of innovators. Google’s CS4HS program has been equipping teachers in New Zealand since 2011 by providing grants for hands on workshops for teachers. Through our free online courses through Adelaide University and our CS4HS workshops we’ve seen thousands of teachers inspired and equipped to implement this new curriculum.
Applications are now open for our 2016 CS4HS program in Australia and New Zealand and are open until 26 February 2016.
