Hi Folks!

  Just wanted to let everyone know that we are offering a class this summer on CS in k12 Ed in hybrid format - 3 days together and the rest online. 

  If you need funding, every district in Minnesota has been granted money called "Title IV Funds" which are specifically designated for classes like this one. I had to do some digging to find the right person in my district, but they are there and very happy to help! The funds are "use-it-or-lose-it", so they are happy to help someone who wants to use them for a CS-related class, and you can receive both CEU certificates and graduate credit (might cost extra). 

  Please let me know if you have any questions!
