This event is free but registration is required.
In this hands on professional development workshop, teachers will learn to use CS First, Google's free ready to teach introductory computer science (CS) curriculum for elementary and middle school students. Students follow step-by-step instructional videos that introduce fundamental computer science concepts and build computer programs using Scratch, a block-based programming language.
During the three hour workshop, teachers will learn about the importance of CS for all students and the teachers' role in creating a learning environment that fosters creative problem through peer-to-peer learning. You'll get a chance to learn about the free lesson plans, solution sheets and other educator enrichment resources included in the curriculum. At the end of the workshop, you'll walk away with a plan of action and strategies for starting to teach CS First and a connection to the growing community of CS First teachers.
