Code.org CS Discoveries Summer Workshop

Mon. July 25, 2022 | 8:30 am - Fri. July 29, 2022 | 4:30 pm CDT

Code.org‘s Computer Science Discoveries is an introductory computer science curriculum geared toward grade 6-10 students of all skill levels. Mapped to CTSA standards, the course takes a wide lens on computer science by covering topics such as problem-solving, programming, physical computing, user-centered design, and data, while inspiring students as they build their own websites, apps, animations, games, and physical computing systems. CS Discoveries also provides a flexible teaching framework, allowing its lessons and projects to be taught in a single semester, two semesters over multiple years, or as a full-year course.

Come discovery the many ways CS Discoveries can help your students grow as CS learners during this year’s summer cohort!

Hosted in partnership with Code.org, this year’s cohort will take place July 25-29, 2022, in Arlington Heights, IL, at the Courtyard by Marriott Chicago Arlington Heights/South. Through scholarships, first-time participants may be able to attend at little-to-no cost. Those that take part in the full program have the chance to earn up to 59 PD hours. In addition to this multi-day event, four quarterly workshops will be held over the course of the following year to provide curriculum users just-in-time support and an opportunity to assess their progress.
