The K-12 STEM Center follows all University guidelines for protecting students, families, teachers and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
USC and Code.org work together as partners to help K-12 teachers, principals, and district administrators to add Computer Science classes in the 2023-24 academic schedule. USC Viterbi School of Engineering has already trained over 100 teachers, even educators with no computer experience! We start in summer by training teachers how to use Code.org’s free, standards-aligned CS curricula; those teachers stay in a community of practice that continues over the first implementation year, attending quarterly workshops for additional support in teaching CS through project-based learning, even during a pandemic.
The Virtual Colloquium on Energy Transition sponsored by Chevron will be held during July 24-25 2023 at USC. A maximum of 20 science teachers will be selected from the applicant list to participate. The colloquium will include a total of three sessions each lasting three hours plus a final three hours for feedback from the participating teachers. Selected teachers who participate and complete the two-day program will receive a stipend, and CE credit.
The colloquium is intended to provide the participating high school science teachers an opportunity to become acquainted with educational aspects of Energy Transition for the benefit of their students before the start of the new school year.
