Through the integration of computational thinking learning experiences into core content areas, students will gain experience with the problem solving skills that are the underpinning of computer science – providing an opportunity for all students to see themselves in this ever-growing field.
Preparations are being made for the second cohort of the Elementary Computer Science Project and we hope that you will join us. We are looking for innovative K-5 teachers to learn about computational thinking and computer science integration. Teachers will get an in depth training, hands on experiences, materials, and the thinking skills to try out in their classrooms.
Three Saturday sessions are October 20, November 17, and January 12 from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm at the Administration building. Collaboration sessions and support through out the project are online with Zoom meetings and classroom visits.
Participants will earn 22.5 hours of technology compensation and STEM clock hours that count toward the STEM requirement for teacher renewal of certification.
Applications are online now and due September 28th. We will accept 30 elementary participants. Teachers will be notified by October 3rd if they are selected.
