Just wanted to let folks know about an opportunity for teachers to develop a project to document computer science opportunities in their local business community. There is funding for teachers included.


From this week’s weekly field memo:


Film Making Opportunity: Computer Science in Your Community

The Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance (MMSA) has an opportunity for educators to go beyond coding and engage students with computer science happening in their community. MMSA is looking for several Vermont teachers (grades 7 to 12) to work on a student filmmaking project highlighting how local businesses utilize computer science and computational thinking. Participants can earn a $2,300 stipend while learning how to work with students students to produce these inexpensive, short videos. MMSA staff have produced some sample videos available on their website that highlight a variety of careers using computational thinking skills, including a dental hygienist, auto repair shop, and web developer. Participating teachers are expected to produce at least one video with their students. Space is limited.
