Support Kids in Computer Science and UX Design TSP
2 people are interested
We are looking for potential volunteers who have coding experience in Java, Python, CSS & HTML and/or experience in UX Design, specifically the design process/design thinking to assist High School students as they learn to code real-world projects. You do not need to have previous teaching experience and teachers will always be present in the classrooms.
This opportunity is a part of the Teacher Scientist Partnership (TSP) program which integrates into High School students' math classes and meets every Friday during the school year for 75 minutes. This year students will learn how to code & design their own website utilizing a cloud-based curriculum through code.org that is easy to use and implement. Volunteers will be asked to review the lesson prior to the class in order to be able to assist the students. The curriculum, however, is taught through code-along videos.
Although this is a year-long, weekly in-class commitment, volunteers can rotate if they would like to cone every other week instead of every week. Currently, the program is being offered at TAF@Saghalie in Federal Way, WA.

TAF equips students of color for success in college and life through the power of a STEM education.
TAF is a nonprofit leader in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. We address three problems that keep students of color away from We use STEM education as a tool for social change. Our targeted approach for addressing longstanding historical inequities for students of color develops leadership and citizenship in ALL students.
TAF is a pioneer in education. We partner with public school districts and STEM industry to give students the kind of education they couldn’t get through a typical charter or public school. We provide innovative learning models, professional development for teachers, and opportunities for students and teachers to learn from and work alongside STEM professionals and use cutting-edge technology.
The stakes are high. We can’t afford to lose more minds to poverty, or to lose more jobs to nations that are better prepared. Most importantly, we can’t afford to miss out on what any one of these students has to offer.
