For two decades, the UTeach pre-service teacher preparation program at The University of Texas at Austin has prepared large numbers of STEM majors to enter (and stay) in secondary classrooms. And since 2007, the UTeach Institute has recruited and supported almost 50 universities across the U.S. to establish their own UTeach programs.

With support from the National Science Foundation, the UTeach Computer Science program leverages the expertise and partnerships we’ve developed over this time to scale UTeach CS Principles through the College Board’s AP® Computer Science Principles program. In addition to providing professional development and teacher support for AP CS Principles, we are engaged in continuous research into the effectiveness of the course.
