If you teach Grades 5-12 students in Canada, Callysto wants to help fund your classroom activities related to computational thinking and coding. For example, you could submit a proposal to cover the cost of developing curriculum resources that feature Jupyter Notebooks (for students, or current/pre-service teachers), or for hosting a coding workshop or student hackathon (e.g. to cover the cost of the venue, catering, or support staff).

Haven’t heard of Callysto? It’s a free, interactive, curriculum-based learning and skills development tool; think “interactive textbook.” Computational thinking is becoming a requirement for the workers of tomorrow — our goal is to give students a head start.
