K-12 educators still have time to sign up for the computer science endorsement cohort at Northwest College.

This endorsement, which can be earned throughout the course of the summer, is designed for those who wish to integrate computer science and computational thinking into their classrooms.

The five courses required to receive the endorsement through NWC are Introduction to Computer Science, Computer Science I, Social Media for K-12 Teachers, Application Development and Robotics.

Topics covered in endorsement program courses include structured programming, application development, cyber citizenship, robotics and more.

Students can begin the endorsement by taking Intro to Computer Science and/or Social Media for K-12 Teachers, which starts at NWC Monday, June 14, or get started with a one-day Robotics lab Saturday, May 29.

The first cohort of local K-12 teachers graduated this month and are now cerified to teach computer science in Wyoming’s public schools.

K-12 professionals who are interested in joining the cohort and earning the computer science endorsement at NWC are encouraged to contact NWC Professor of Engineering and Mathematics Astrid Northrup at Astrid.Northrup@nwc.edu or 307-754-6066.
