No stranger to computer science, Chicago Public School (CPS) teachers had the opportunity to play all while learning coding principles! Elementary and middle school teachers experienced an engaging learning session back in early September with BootUp Professional Development (PD) facilitators, thanks to the renewed partnership with Amazon Future Engineer.
BootUp PD and Codercub hosted a weeklong Young Coders Camp in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, from the 5th of July until the 9th, where 27 students attended the camp–two-thirds ranging from six to eight. The camp was held at the Hub Innovation Center under the Capital City Business Innovation and Development Agency.
Clark Merkley has a plan—a plan to go out of business. “If every elementary student in the worldknew how to code and knew how to do rigorous computational thinking, we would close the doors.” Because of Clark’s lofty goal, BootUp PD will not likely be closing anytime soon.

This year, we've been busy strengthening our partnership with Amazon Future Engineer, renewing our commitment to closing gaps in CS Education, and expanding our reach into new territories.
