PUMP-CS ECS 2024-25 application form
This form is an application for the summer 2024 cohort of Exploring Computer Science.

Curriculum: Exploring Computer Science (ECS) is a nationally recognized Computer Science (CS) curriculum that targets students in grades 9-10. ECS was developed as a curriculum intended for all students. ECS is intended as a general introduction to computer science suitable for most high school students. Participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in both the content and the inquiry-based pedagogy of the ECS Curriculum. All participants will also have access to resources developed by the PUMP-CS team through the project website as well as on-going support for classroom implementation of the ECS curriculum.

Program Structure: our multi-year program includes a week-long summer workshop lead by our experienced facilitators, followed by quarterly meetings throughout the school year. In the second year, if space is available and the teacher has taught the course in the previous year,  participants may attend another week of summer workshop, bringing their experience to the next cohort while further enriching their own teaching. Our next summer cohort starts August 5, 2024.

Requirements: We are accepting applications from teachers in any discipline. If you are a Special Education teacher you must attend with your content area co-teacher. 
Teachers must apply to participate (that's what this form is for.) Teachers must teach at an accredited high school that schedules an ECS or an equivalent course in the academic year following their first summer workshop.
