Call for Proposals: INFYMAKERS Awards
Across the U.S., educators are striving to create more opportunities for K-12+ students to participate in meaningful making experiences that engage them in computer science. However, they are also facing challenges and obstacles, whether that may be a limitation of resources or opportunities to build relationships with like-minded peers.
Ten winning educators of the INFYMAKERS Awards will receive a $10,000 grant and the opportunity to participate in the Making CS Inclusive Cohort, a professional learning experience facilitated by Digital Promise from January to August 2024. The grant is flexible and can be used for materials, projects, research, community engagement and more.
