Libraries Ready to Code is an initiative of the American Library Association, sponsored by Google, which aims to ensure libraries have the resources, capacity, and inspiration to embrace activities that promote computational thinking (CT) and computer science (CS) among our nation’s youth.
ALA is accepting grant proposals of up to $25,000 to join a cohort of libraries that will –
1) implement CT or CS programming for and with youth via their library; and
2) collaboratively develop a Ready to Code toolkit with the goal of enabling any library, regardless of geography, expertise, or affluence to deliver programming that promotes computer science and computational thinking among youth.
Proposals are now being accepted. Deadline is August 31, 2017.
Please share with and encourage your local school and public libraries to apply!
