Northern Coding Academy Teacher Symposium

This week-long teacher training intensive will run twice this summer, on July 18-22, 2022, and August 8-12, 2022. Each participant will create a cross-curricular project that will incorporate digital skill building. Participants will be given the tools to develop their project with their students throughout the subsequent school year, including a class set of hardware to help them realize their goals. Throughout the school year, teachers will participate in monthly webinars to help guide their work further, review progress, and learn more about teaching digital skills.
