Our crystal ball is showing a future Computer Science Education CertificateAre you slated to teach computer science at your school? Did you know that the Hawai‘i State Legislature passed a bill to require computer science in all schools? The UH Mānoa College of Education and College of Natural Sciences are partnering to develop a computer science education certificate program. This certificate program would be open to any undergraduate student in Mānoa. Come hear more about our current development and process and share some of your ideas on what you think should be part of the program. We'd love to hear from preservice teachers, current teachers, and community partners. Mahalo for supporting STEM education!
