As part of Carrie Anne Philbin’s keynote announcement last week, we also announced the availability of financial assistance grants for qualified primary and secondary teachers wishing to attend the Python in Education Miniconf on July 31st.
Teachers that are interested in attending the Python in Education Miniconf, but face financial barriers to doing so, are strongly encouraged to apply for financial assistance.
These grants are made possible by the generous contributions of the Python Software Foundation and Code Club Australia, and are designed to make it easier for teachers to justify attending an education focused event hosted by a software development conference. As such, teachers may apply not only for assistance with registration, travel, and accommodation costs as described for the regular financial assistance program, but also a contribution of up to $360 towards the costs of hiring a substitute teacher for the day.
