There’s Still Time – Apply for a STEM Grant!

Apply by April 15th for up to $1500 in funding to incorporate or expand the use of STEM-based learning in your program. Extra points will be given to programs that have signed the Make It Count Pledgeand who have submitted an Assessment using the AzQSAT. Additional consideration will be given to programs that promote equity.
 
Explorations in Computer Science for K-8
April 20, 2021
 
As part of our Summer Planning Focus on Tuesday, April 20th, AzCASE invites you to attend a session on Explorations in Computer Science for K-8. In this session, participants will learn about and explore free resources to support students learning computer science. No computer science background is required, just a passion for sharing this critical skill with the youth with whom you work. Various block-based programming environments will be explored along with ideas to unleash youth engagement, creativity, and self-expression!
