Code.org CS Principles Summer Workshop – Southwest Baptist University (Missouri)

Tue. June 20, 2023 | 8:30 am - Sat. June 24, 2023 | 4:30 pm CDT

Code.org‘s Computer Science Principles curriculum introduces students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenges them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world.

More than a traditional introduction to programming, it is a rigorous, engaging, and approachable course that explores many of the foundational ideas of computing so all students understand how these concepts are transforming the world we live in.

Hosted in partnership with Code.org, this multi-day workshop will introduce educators to the CS Principles curriculum and demonstrate how it can be utilized to fulfill new and emerging CS education requirements.

Participants will walk away with a plethora of resources for making CS learning engaging for all learners, as well as the skills and confidence needed to be an effective CS educator.

This year’s cohort will take place June 20-24, at Southwest Baptist University’s Gene Taylor Free Enterprise Center in Bolivar, MO. 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.
