• CS Summer Bridge Program

  • Plano ISD Computer Science Summer Bridge Program is offered to current 8th graders, who will be 9th graders in Fall 2023.  We are asking principals and counselors to help identify students who would benefit from this program.  We are prioritizing students from historically underrepresented populations (minority students, females, low income, etc.) in the computer science fields of study and workplaces.  

    At least 180 students will be eligible to participate in one of two planned weeks during June 2023.  Students in this program will build their coding skills in the Python programming language and learn about careers in computer science while engaging with professionals from the computer science field.  Students do not need prior experience to participate in this program.  There will be no charge for students to participate in this program.


    There will be two sessions offered at no charge to the students.  This program will take place at Williams High School.  Transportation will be provided from middle schools across the district.  

    • June 5 -8, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.  (includes 30 minute lunch)

    • June 12-15, 2023 from 9 a.m. – 2:15 p.m.  (includes 30 minute lunch) 

    Two levels of this program will be offered.

    • Novice Level 2 - students who took Fundamentals of Computer Science and/or Python specific camps.
