Computer science opens more doors for students than any other discipline in today’s world. Learning even the basics will help students in virtually any career—from architecture to zoology. Just as we teach students how to dissect a frog, or how electricity works, it’s important for every 21st century student to have a chance to design an app or an algorithm, or learn how the Internet works.
Battelle Education in partnership with Code.org (a non-profit computer science curriculum provider) is dedicated to expanding statewide access to computer science, and increasing participation of women and underrepresented minorities. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn CS. Reaching this vision requires professional learning for principals, school counselors and teachers.
Join us on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 from 10AM-12PM for a Computer Science Administrator and School Counselors workshop. Learn more about what Computer Science is and how to get members of your staff prepared to teach computer science.
Who is this meeting for?
Principals and school counselors who have teachers being trained to teach Computer Science Principles or Discoveries (Middle School) or are interested in bringing foundational Computer Science courses to their school
