    Connect Industry to the CS Classroom

    Microsoft TEALS-

    Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) is a Microsoft Philanthropies program that connects existing classroom teachers with industry professionals to create a sustainable CS program at your school. The industry professionals provide the content to the teacher and the students, while the classroom teacher guides the lesson planning and takes on the role of lead learner. This unique professional development model empowers teachers to learn computer science from an expert in the field and eventually teach courses on their own. Many TEALS schools have teachers that have trained with code.org and find that the combination of our programs has been beneficial to student success.

     We are currently accepting partner school applications for the 2021-22 school year. You can access the application at Microsoft.com/TEALS.

    UP Environmental Coalition Environmental Education Grants

     Applications being accepted through March 1, 2021

     Are you a teacher with a great idea for getting your students interested in the environment? We invite you to make your idea a reality through our Environmental Education Grant program.

    For over 15 years, UPEC’s Board has approved grants of up to $500 to support educator-promoted environmental projects within schools or other educational organizations. In 2021, grant applications are due on March 1.

    UPEC believes this grant series is especially important because schools are strapped for dollars to do innovative environmental education programs.
