The Advancing Culturally-Relevant Computing project is offering five workshops in June 2024. The purpose of these workshops is to explore culturally-relevant computing with a growing community of educators promoting high-quality Computer Science (CS) education in Hawaiʻi. These three-day workshops are designed for in-service elementary teachers working in grades 3–6. Participants will receive access to culturally-relevant CS lessons, as well as a stipend of $585. All prior knowledge levels are welcome. Space is limited.

Since 2022, aCRC has been helping elementary educators integrate CS into their classrooms. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the project is based on the premise that structured professional development modeling culturally-relevant computing is an effective way to prepare educators to reliably produce valued CS outcomes while promoting valued culture-based outcomes.
