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 fourth 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.
This year we will have two release days and one Saturday session:
- Wednesday, October 9th from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm
- Saturday, November 16th from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
- Tuesday, January 14th from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
Participants will earn 20 STEM clock hours that count toward the STEM requirement for teacher renewal of certification. The Saturday session is eligible for tech compensation.
Applications are online now and due September 30th. We will accept 20 elementary participants. Teachers will be notified by October 2nd if they are selected.
