With a little perspective and confidence, we can take great strides toward the classroom of our dreams. You’ll leave this speech entertained, equipped and inspired to create memorable learning that changes students’ lives.

Creating PreK-12 Computer Science Pathway with Project Lead the Way
Limited Capacity seats available

Project Lead The Way is committed to expanding access to high-quality computer science education and professional development across the country and in Indiana. Fewer than 40% of Indiana schools offer Computer Science to their students and in rural counties that number drops to 20%. In Indiana K-8 Computer Science standards will be tested on the new ILearn exam beginning this year, and all high schools will be required to offer at least one CS elective beginning in 2021. Let’s work on creating an aligned pathway for your students! Computer Science is no longer an industry, it is part of every industry.
