VSTE is pleased to bring the TEACH WONDER
Professional Learning Program to Virginia Schools
Virginia's recent adoption of K-12 Computer Science Standards has made computational thinking and coding part of every educator's vocabulary throughout K-12. Robots offer an engaging way to integrate these skills across content areas and grade levels. VSTE, in partnership with Wonder Workshop, is pleased to be able to offer the Teach Wonder program to educators in Virginia.
Educators who participate will receive a Dash robot and access to a self-paced online course related to the foundations of coding and robotics. Teachers may be able to apply the 12-hour course towards PD hours.
Cost: $125 ($450 value) for course + Dash robot
