NCDPI: Computational Thinking

The Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership is partnering with the N.C. Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) and the #IamCS movement to advance STEM education and build an NC-based ecosystem of teacher leaders that will support career and workforce development in the computer science fields. Five Kenan Fellows will be selected from any subject area and grade level to highlight cross-curricular opportunities in Computational Thinking/Computer Science (CT/CS). Along with the traditional fellowship experience, the three-week internship will include customized professional development in CT/CS as well as two weeks of immersion with a local industry partner to see where connections can be made for students in the Northeastern and Western areas of the state.
