According to the Bureau of Labor & Statistics, in 2018 the U.S. is  expected to produce only 29% of the required number of graduates to fill the 1.4  million U.S. computer specialty job openings that are forecast. Future jobs outside of computer science are also  going to require computational and problem-solving skills that are developed when kids learn to code.

That’s why we’re excited to partner with Wonder Workshop to bring the Teach Wonder Professional Learning Program to RISTE members at a deep discount. Save $325-$350 when you register for the Teach Wonder program using the discount code provided through our organization.

With two courses, Teach Wonder meets the needs of both elementary and middle school teachers looking for the knowledge and skills they need to teach these 21st-century skills.

Introduction to Coding and Robotics with Dash & Dot is designed for elementary school teachers.

Introduction to Coding and Robotics with Cue is designed for middle school teachers.

A robot is included with the purchase of the course.

We've chosen to partner with Wonder Workshop because they are uniquely positioned to provide this resource to educators. 

Their team of experienced educators and instructional design specialists have also developed a K-5 Learn to Code Curriculum and an Applied Robotics Curriculum for more advanced students.  In addition, they provide an extensive library of cross-curricular lesson plans that address topics from science to storytelling.

Instructions for redeeming the code can be found here
