1. Computer Science Teachers Association The Voice for K-12 computer science education and its educators.
The Computer Science Teachers Association is a membership organization that supports and promotes the teaching of computer science and other computing disciplines. CSTA provides opportunities for K-12 teachers and students to better understand the computing disciplines and to more successfully prepare themselves to teach and learn.
2. Google: Computer Science for High School (CS4HS) CS4HS (Computer Science for High School) is an initiative sponsored by Google to promote Computer Science and Computational Thinking in high school and middle school curriculum. With a grant from Google's Education Group, universities develop 2-3 day workshops for local high school and middle school CS teachers. These workshops incorporate informational talks by industry leaders, and discussions on new and emerging CS curricula at the high school and middle school level. On this site, you'll find information on how to apply for a CS4HS grant, information for workshop attendees and partners, and other helpful resources. We currently offer CS4HS grants in the US, Canada, Europe, Middle East, Africa, China, New Zealand, and Australia.
The 2012 application process is now open. Please submit your application by March 3, 2012 to be considered for a CS4HS 2012 grant. Grant amounts for 2012 will be approximately 10K-15K USD.
3. High School Computer Science - Wolfram Demonstrations ProjectConceived by Mathematica creator and scientist Stephen Wolfram as a way to bring computational exploration to the widest possible audience, the Wolfram Demonstrations Project is an open-code resource that uses dynamic computation to illuminate concepts in science, technology, mathematics, art, finance, and a remarkable range of other fields.
Its daily growing collection of interactive illustrations is created by Mathematica users from around the world who participate by contributing innovative Demonstrations.
Interactive computational resources have typically been scattered across the web. Moreover, their creation requires specialized programming knowledge, making them difficult and expensive to develop. As a result, their breadth and reach are limited.
