Remake Learning invites applications for the CSforPGH Mini-Grant, which was created to improve K-12 computer science pedagogy and broaden access to computer science at home. Funded by the generous support of BNY Mellon, Remake Learning will award grants of up to $5,000 to establish new opportunities for out-of-school time (OST) organizations and formal educators at school districts strategically in rural and urban areas to create resources for families that may have limited access to technology resources needed to do foundational coding activities at
Applications may be submitted by individuals or teams. Teachers are welcome to submit more than one application, though it is unlikely that an individual will receive more than one grant. Collaborative applications will not count toward the one award per person maximum.
Grant funds must be used on or before May, 2023. The expectation is that orders and materials are placed rapidly after the grant is awarded.
In alignment with Remake Learning’s mission to “ignite engaging, relevant, and equitable learning practices in support of young people navigating rapid social and technological change,” the CSforPGH Educators Grant will prioritize proposals that:
- Expand computer science to traditionally excluded groups such as girls, minorities, immigrants, or children with disabilities.
- Experiment or innovate the teaching of computer science.
- Enable collaboration between disciplines, schools, or entities.
- Encourage learning through new media, play, and creation.
Allowable expenses include, but are not limited to:
- Integrating computer science into existing courses which includes at-home components
- Tuition for computer science courses (for teachers or students)
- Out of school time expenses which incorporate an at-home element
- Costs associated with gatherings (ie. food, snacks)
- Supplies (ie. hardware, software, technology kits) for home kits
- Collaboration between schools or teachers that leads to at-home CS learning
- Be a current K-12 educator (Formal or Out-of-School time) in the Remake Learning counties of Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Lawrence, Mercer, Washington, and Westmoreland in Pennsylvania, as well as parts of north-central West Virginia (Marshall, Brooke, Hancock, Ohio, and Mon).
- Be a member of the Remake Learning network. Membership is free and open. Add yourself to the directory at remakelearning.org/join
- Submit all application materials, including the completed questionnaire, budget, and internal questions by November 18 at 11:59 pm.
