Iowa Selected for NSF Chapter-in-a-box Grant
The goal of this project is to build the capacity of CSTA chapters to create robust communities of computer science teachers with an increased sense of professional identity as computer science teachers.
Our leadership team is committed to supporting you no matter where or in what matter you teach Computer Science in Iowa! We're excited for this opportunity and look forward to sharing more information and resources as this work unfolds.
Please complete the Engagement Survey linked below so we can better understand your needs and ability to support our chapter's work.
If you teach K-12 Computer Science, we need YOUR voice!
The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the Kapor Center are conducting a survey of K-12 computer science teachers in the United States. The CS education landscape continues to evolve, especially in light of COVID-19, and we want to hear directly from teachers about your experiences, challenges, and what resources would be most useful to you at this time. Having detailed and current information allows policymakers, curriculum & PD providers, State Departments of Education, membership associations, and other organizations to better understand and meet the needs of teachers. Results will be used to make specific recommendations to improve support for CS teachers.

We invite you to participate in this national survey, which will take approximately 15 minutes of your time. Responses are confidential and optional. 


As thanks for your time, teachers who complete the survey will receive a $10 discount on CSTA Annual Conference registration fees πŸ’΅ and be entered in a raffle for one of five $100 Amazon gift cards. πŸ’°
