Teachers show their commitment to learning at MIT

Our teachers are always learning! Manchester is proudly represented by 36 teachers who are participating in a two-day "Coding Across the Curriculum" training led by the Scheller Teacher Education Program at MIT.

Today, Dyn Inc. founder Jeremy Hitchcock addressed the teachers and stressed that students need to learn code as they prepare to meet the workforce needs of companies like his. 

NH Community College Chancellor Ross Gitell spoke about how this project meets one of the key recommendations of the Governor's STEM Taskforce and that this training could serve as a model that could be brought to the entire state.

MIT hopes that this program could spread across the country as they partner with the business community and school districts to teach these essential skills.

Teachers' participation in this project is funded by Dyn, the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and Granite United Way in partnership with STEAM Ahead NH.
