Free Curricula and online resources

Hi everyone,

We know it’s hard at the moment with everything that is going on. Educators all over the world are currently figuring out how to teach students remotely, and resources are being generated from many organizations to try to tackle this problem. We plan on sending updates out to the community on anything that we create, but we also want to let you know about the resources that our partners have available as well. 

Below you will find our curricula and links to free offerings from our friends. 

Curricula that we have available:

If students have access to a physical LEGO EV3, VEX IQ, VEX EDR V5 robot, or Parallax’s Shield-Bot, we have several free curricula available for students. Click the link below to get access to our curricula:

To get through these times, we extended the free trials for CS2N Premium Access. This will allow you to create unlimited groups, and sign up an unlimited number of students. Just go to the Premium page, and click on “Start Trial” to enable it:
