CSPDWeek 2023 Applications Now Open!

Indiana is proud to announce we are now accepting applications for Indiana CSPDWeek brought to you by the national Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), the Indiana CSTA Chapter, Nextech, and the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE).
Here are the steps to apply.
Step 1: Complete this initial application. Tell us about you, your school, and your goals for CS education. You do not need a written principal approval form yet (you will submit this in January) though it would be helpful if you had a verbal agreement. By completing this application, you have priority (in case we run out of room) and you can go ahead and save the date for the summer.
Step 2:
In January, you will get a link to complete your application, upload your principal approval form, and rank your workshop selections.
Step 3:
After you have been accepted, you will receive an email to confirm your spot and input your travel needs and request hotel accommodations.
