Opportunities for YOU!

Offer Mobile Computer Science Principles for College Credit in your high school next year!
 
Connecticut high schools can partner with Capital Community College's (CCC) College Career Pathways (CCP) program to offer Mobile CSP for college credit. Eligible teachers will receive professional development and the full curriculum at no cost and have the opportunity to earn a stipend, thanks to a National Science Foundation grant.  Schools and teachers must agree to offer the course the following academic year and recruit students to enroll. In our pilot year, more than 90% of students earned college credit . For more information visit mobile-csp.org/ce and see attached info. To apply, email Karen Binkhorst at KBinkhorst@ccc.commnet.edu.
