The Amazon Future Engineer + BootUp Elementary CS Initiative

BootUp is working with Amazon Future Engineer to provide computer science to support elementary school teachers through ongoing professional development and onsite support. BootUp’s model of sustainable elementary computer science is effective in large and small districts across the country, helping teachers achieve confidence and self-efficacy in their computer science instruction.

The Amazon Future Engineer initiative funds BootUp’s ongoing, onsite professional development to elementary teachers on the content and pedagogy of computer science education. In working with Amazon, BootUp wants to help close opportunity gaps in computer science and computational thinking.

At BootUp, we know that every district is different; professional development and support is customizable and scheduled to take into account each district’s unique needs.

Help us launch computer science initiatives at over 1,000 new elementary schools in this exciting new opportunity. Apply today!
