Our project offers free summer workshops on its curriculum. The workshops introduce teachers to a new program design method, a series of supportive programming languages, and the pedagogically well-founded programming environment. The project has support from several sponsors. In seventeen years, the workshops have trained over 850 educators at six venues.
Duration and Format: five days; 8am-5pm; alternating between class and lab
Venues: Please see the separate page of information.
Our workshops are intended for middle-school and high-school math an computing teachers, and for college and uiversity faculty interested in introductory computing education. All people who teach computer science or closely related disciplines, or are simply interested in using computation in their curricula (no matter what their discipline), are welcome.

Costs and Registration
The summer course and the materials are free; there is no deposit or registration fee. The cost is borne by the sponsors.
The workshop also provides continental breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Participants are in principle responsible for travel, dining and hotels, but the project does offer considerable financial support. You do not need to inform us of financial need; we will automatically consider you for support if you are eligible for it.
