9-12 Professional Development

Nextech is excited to provide immersive professional development opportunities to Indiana teachers. These programs are designed for:

  • Inservice teachers who are being asked to teach computer science for the very first time and may not have the curriculum knowledge and/or licensure to teach the course(s) OR
  • Teachers expanding the computer science pathway or available classes at their school.

At Nextech, our goal is to remove every single barrier to teaching computer science for teachers, schools, and districts.

All of our programs are offered at no cost to schools/districts and many include a generous stipend for the teacher.
