About Us

Our Mission:

The Allen Distinguished Educators award program recognized and rewarded teachers who provided students with opportunities to become thinkers, makers, and creators through computer science, engineering, and entrepreneurship. While this award is no longer available, we encourage teachers to continue to access the resources; including microdocumentaries, DIY guides and roadmaps.

Our Vision:
  • Schools where students learn to think, make, innovate, and create
  • Teachers inspired and empowered to redefine excellence and reinvent classrooms
  • Networked educators who collaborate to make innovative approaches to learning an option for all students
  • An education landscape that nurtures student and teacher initiative and passion
  • Parents and communities that embrace opportunities for students to learn engineering, entrepreneurship, and computer science in ways that engage and excite them
