The Computer Science (CS) Matters in Maryland professional development team would like to invite you to participate in our AP Computer Science Principles CSP training this year.

This collaborative research project is between the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, the University of Maryland College Park, and Maryland high school computer science teachers. The project is focused on increasing the number of rigorous computer science classes offered across the state and the number and diversity of students taking these classes, and is funded by the National Science Foundation (Award CNS-1339265). You can learn more about this program and the participants at our website -

Teachers are expected to commit to all project activities:

  • Participate in all scheduled in-person events, including:
    • a cohort kickoff meeting on Saturday, May 13, 2017;
    • a summer workshop at the USM Chancellor’s Adelphi Office (July 17-28, 2017);
  • Contribute weekly to an online community of collaborative instruction and support throughout the training period and academic year.
  • Assist in forming a professional learning community among computer science teachers throughout Maryland.

The summer workshop is designed for commuters, and housing is not provided. Teachers who are traveling more than 40 miles to the USM Adelphi site may apply for funding support to defray their travel expenses.

If you are interested in participating, please apply today.

We will contact you to confirm if you have been admitted to the CS Matters in MD AP CSP professional development.
