Who We Work With
We are fortunate to work with organizations, institutions, and sponsors who share our passion and vision for computer science education for all. Together, we are empowering students and teachers with 21st-century skills for a brighter future.
Amazon Future Engineer + BootUp Sponsorship
The Amazon Future Engineer sponsorship provides three years of ongoing onsite professional development to elementary teachers on the content and pedagogy of computer science education. The sponsorship provides everything districts need to implement a sustainable computer science initiative. This includes eight onsite professional development workshops, ongoing model teaching and coaching, curricula and teacher lesson plans, and an online Instructional Coach Course to ensure the sustainability of the program.
Wind River Computer Science Elementary Collaborative
Native American communities are underrepresented in computer science professions, and there is a need educationally to make this domain relevant to Native cultures. The American Institutes for Research--in collaboration with the Wyoming Department of Education, three Wyoming school districts on the Wind River Reservation, and BootUp Professional Development--will write, pilot, and refine a curriculum for grades 3-5 that integrates computer science and Wyoming Indian Education for All social studies standards in culturally relevant ways. This curriculum will be published by Wyoming Department of Education for all districts in the state to use as they implement newly mandated Wyoming computer science and Indian Education for All social studies standards. This project is funded by NSF CS for All.
