Bring Mouse Create to your learning site
Be part of a community of students and educators that engage with computer science and creative technology to solve real problems and make meaningful change in their schools, communities, and the world around them.
In response to school closings and families choosing to stay home, Mouse would like to support students, educators, and families by continuing to offer activities that can keep young people learning STEM and computer science digitally during this time.
Mouse Create Membership
For the 2020-2021 school year, Mouse will waive the membership fee for a Full Membership, which grants you access to all 16 STEM + CS Courses and over 200 projects, ranging in topics from coding, IT, game design, digital portfolios, design thinking, video making, and sewable tech. Learn more about all the benefits and curricula available through a Full Membership.
Mouse Create is ideal for hybrid / blended content delivery to students combining synchronous and asynchronous learning.
Mouse Open Projects
Mouse's new curriculum resource, Mouse Open Projects, allows students to get started on our learning content without signing into an account, educator guidance, or materials. We created this resource to help all learners, regardless of their situations, to keep engaging with STEM and computer science in school or at home.
Mouse Open Projects currently has about 20 of the projects that educators can find on our online learning platform, Mouse Create.
Online Professional Development
Mouse is also providing free online professional development sessions to all educators and adults. Sign up for upcoming onboarding sessions on the Mouse events & opportunities page under "Onboarding workshops."
National Youth and Educator Network
We currently work with school districts in New York City, California, Chicago, Minnesota, and several others sites across the country. Mouse fosters a community for educators from multiple sites throughout a school district to collaborate and share their successes, while giving each the freedom to tailor our content to fit their individual goals.

About Mouse Create Membership
Mouse Create is our online platform designed for young people to build the skills they need to apply design and technology creatively to the world around them.
Exciting, hands-on projects for the classroom or afterschool programs
Our hands-on, interactive projects inspire STEM learning in the classroom, afterschool programs, libraries, or makerspaces. Examples include clubs focused on circuitry or coding -- or bringing our green tech projects into your science classroom or adding 3D design to your arts curriculum.
Microprojects are monthly challenges for members of our national network to be creative with free web tools and technology, including creating your own font, animated name, avatar, or many other topics! See an example here.
Digital Badges to Recognize New Skills and Competencies
Youth over the age of 13 can earn digital badges that can be shared on social networks, college applications, or resumes. Mouse has partnered with Credly, a leading platform for issuing and managing digital credentials recognized by employers, K-12 stakeholders, and universities.
Educator Professional Development
Mouse offers several professional development opportunities for educators, including group and on-site training, unlimited remote support throughout the school year, and a course specifically designed for Mouse Educators. See more resources for Mouse Educators here.
