Professional Learning Program - CS Discoveries and CS Principles

Texas Computer Science courses, including those aligned to CS Discoveries (Fundamentals of CS) and CS Principles, have recently moved to CTE and qualify for weighted funding. Teachers should check with their administrators to see if these funds are available to support their involvement in this Professional Learning Program. There are also scholarships available for those that qualify. Fundamentals of CS and CS Principles (AP and non-AP) can be taught by a teacher with either a Technology Applications or Computer Science 8-12 certification.

CS Discoveries

Computer Science Discoveries is appropriate for 6-10th-grade students and can be taught as a semester or year-long introductory course (3-5 hours per week of instruction for 9+ weeks). The course takes a wide lens on computer science by covering topics such as programming, physical computing, HTML/CSS, and data. The course inspires students as they build their own websites, apps, games, and physical computing devices.
