Infosys Foundation’s Pathfinders Summer Institute will be taking place July 15-20, 2018 at Indiana University Bloomington. We will be offering our regular week-long summer PD alongside about 20 other CS & Maker PD programs. Details and the application can be found at InfyPathfinders.org, and you can view our Teacher Program page for more information about our PD program.
Participation in Exploring Computer Science (ECS) summer PD includes a $1,000 stipend, and travel, room, and board are all provided. All costs for those teachers accepted for ECS PD will be covered by a combination of Infosys and NSF funds, and you will not have to do any independent fundraising.
As a reminder, in order to be eligible for ECS PD, teachers must commit to teaching ECS as a full course at the high school level in 2018-19. In addition, new teachers must commit to participating in the full ECS PD experience—5 days in summer 2018, 4 quarterly ECS Online PD sessions, and 5 additional days in summer 2019. ECS teachers who are interested in this program as their second summer of PD are welcome to apply as well.
Applicants will need to submit an administrator letter of support indicating that they will teach ECS next year and participate in the full PD experience. The letter should be downloaded from the Pathfinders website (link is next to ECS description) and completed prior to starting the application process.
