About the MCIU and Code.org Regional Partnership
The MCIU is proud to serve as the Code.org Regional Partner for Eastern Pennsylvania. In partnership with Allegheny Intermediate Unit (Western PA Regional Partner), we work together to help facilitate and make available the numerous resources and professional learning from Code.org to Pennsylvania educators.
The Code.org curriculum, online student learning platform, and access to support from the teacher and Code.org community are available to all schools year-round, free of charge.
The MCIU’s main role as a Regional Partner is facilitating professional learning for specific Code.org curriculum areas:
- Computer Science Fundamentals (Grades K – 5): Available year round
- Computer Science Discoveries (Grades 6 – 9): 4 Day summer program with one virtual evening per month during the school year
- Computer Science Principles (High School): 4 Day summer program with one virtual evening per month during the school year
- Computer Science Advanced (High School): 5 Day summer program with one virtual evening per month during the school year
The cost of the CSD, CSP, and CSA programs are $1500 per teacher to attend, but there is scholarship money available to cover the cost of the program (not including travel).
