The workshop's goal is to give teachers the knowledge and resources to incorporate computational thinking elements into their regular curricula, while giving them the opportunity to earn two University of Washington credits or 20 clock hours from WSTA.
Specifically, the CS4HS workshop aims to:
- Let you earn either 20 clock hours OR 2 university credits.
- Expose you to exciting examples of computer science operating in close relationships with other disciplines.
- Teach you the basics of computational problem solving and give you the vocabulary to relate these concepts to your students and your own subject material.
- Give you hands-on experience with visual and physical programming environments (No programming experience necessary)
- Broaden your view of computer science and the way it is shaping Washington's communities and people--and those of the entire world.
- Explore opportunities for you to help broaden your students' interest in computer science and dispel myths about what computer science is and is not.
Thank you for your interest--if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!
