Workshop Objectives

  • Model practical classroom activities to teach computational thinking in algorithms, data, abstraction, programming, and internet
  • Provide training sessions in specific technologies, including beginning and advanced Scratch, Python, and HTML, CSS, and Javascript
  • Model proven good pedagogy for teaching computer science concepts so students improve their thinking and problem solving skills
  • Build a community of learners who teach computational thinking in K-12


We will follow a similar format as previous years.



This Conference is Designed for...

K-12 Teachers who want to improve technical Computer Science skills and learn CS pedagogy. Teachers can choose from three different tracks:

  • the Integration track, which is for any teacher in grades 3-12 not teaching a full CS course but interested in integrating CS into content areas
  • the CSP track, which is for teachers teaching the full CSP course
  • the CS A track, which is for teachers teaching the full CS AP A course.

All teachers will receive free parking and meals.  All teachers participating in the CSP or Integration Track will receive $25 per hour of participation.  Teachers in the CS A Track should receive compensation for participation through their school district.

Full participation earns 32 Professional Development hours.
