MNCodes is an educator training initiative from Code Savvy designed to develop coding awareness, skills and resources among K-12 and after-school educators through hands-on workshops, conferences and mentoring, with a focus on expanding computer science learning opportunities to all learners.
We provide interactive training opportunities for educators to explore coding as well as practical ideas on how to integrate computer science into school curricula and out-of-school educational programs, all while working to interrupt and counteract gender and racial gaps in computer science. MNCodes offers professional development both for classroom teachers and for community educators. Please see our Professional Trainer page or contact us if you would like to arrange custom training.
Current sponsored events include:
- MN Coding in the Classroom Leadership Cohort, a group of K-12 teachers who meet monthly to explore, collaborate and share information about computer science education and develop resources for integrating computer science into MN classrooms and other learning environments.
- MNCodes Summit, held each year in May.
- Scratch Camp for Educators, held every summer.
- Edison Robot Training, offered throughout the year.
