The Software Engineering Program (SEP) is a multi-year, comprehensive, standards-aligned computer science education program for grades 6 to 12. The goals of the program are:
From 2013-16, SEP served 42 teachers and more than 3000 students in grades 6-11, across nine high schools and nine middle schools. In 2016-17, SEP expanded to include 22 additional middle and high schools.
The SEP curriculum gives students instruction and experience in the following areas: computer programming, robotics, web design, physical computing, game design and 3D printing. SEP students participate in local and central hackathons, and in work-based experiences with major industry leaders and partners.
We are looking for programmers and educators to design curricula for NYC public middle and high school teachers without a computer science background. The curriculum will break down computer science concepts and practices into a sequence of stand-alone projects that teachers can help students build.
Applications for the program are currently closed.
