Register Your Team Now

Teams that are implementing CS in their states, districts, and schools are eligible to apply. Teams should send 3-5 individuals, representing the diversity of roles involved in your proposed project, including (if possible) education researchers who will be a part of the RPP proposal. Appropriate researchers might, for example, study school improvement efforts, student learning, teacher preparation and development, and other issues of implementation and learning. Other team members may include project implementers, such as professional development provders, CTE teachers, pre-service teacher educators, etc. Community stakeholders might include non-profit organizations, industry partners, STEM eco-learning and STEMX effort leaders, etc. District and state implementers include district staff and coaches, school building leaders, assessment developers, etc.

Because not all teams may have identified a research partner, we invite researchers to apply and meet with interested project teams in order to help them identify appropriate research questions and the types of researchers they could approach as potential partners. Applicants should describe their questions and focus area in the application.

  1. All teams must consist of 3-5 members, including you.
  2. Accepted teams will recieve an email containing a link for individual member registration.

Application Deadline Dec. 23

Travel expense reimbursements will be rendered after the workshop. For those driving 50 miles or more to attend the workshop, the ground transportation rate is 54 cents/mile.
