Computer Science


Every student in every school deserves the opportunity to learn computer science.” CODE.ORG

Beginning in June 2018 TIE will offer five workshops that feature computer science curriculum examples and coding extensions.  These workshops will develop a computer science roadmap that includes curriculum and will expand to other areas of computer science and coding programs. Participants will learn in an interactive and hands-on approach as they experience several coding extensions and tools. Participants will make connections to the content standards and learn how to integrate computer science into their existing curriculum.

All workshops will be held from 8:30-3:30 local time.
