Workshops

The Ultimate Software Academy for Computer Science Education is pleased to offer training workshops to help existing K-12 teachers learn programming skills. The workshops are taught by Dr. Greg Reis, Mr. Ruben Almaceda, Ms. Cristy Charters (FIU Faculty) and Mr. Jamie Gant (award winning teacher from Ronald Reagan/Doral Senior High School). We strive to make these workshops free and approved for PD credits by Dade County Public Schools. If you are a teacher, please contact Vitalii Stebliankin (academy-admin@cis.fiu.edu) for information on how to register for these workshops.
