CS Principles Pilot Interest

If you are interested in being a pilot site for the new CS: Principles course, it’s time to sign up!

In the academic year 2010-2011 five college/university sites are piloting the CS Principles course. The pilot sites were chosen from those schools represented on the CS Principles Advisory Board.

In the academic year 2011-2012 more schools will be participating in the second phase of the pilot. For some schools we will offer financial support to assist in the pilot, but we hope that many schools will choose to participate in the pilot without financial support, but with access to materials developed to support the course and its delivery.

The second pilot will be open to high schools as well as to four year colleges and unversities. We hope to open the pilot to community colleges as well and actively seek interest from all these types of institutions.

If you are interested in piloting the course in the 2011-2012 academic year please fill out the brief form below. We will be contacting you with more information in May or June to provide information about how the second phase of the pilot will go forward.
