Code.org had developed elementary school free of charge curriculum that allows even the youngest learner to explore the limitless world of computer science. Code.org is hosting a no-cost, one-day workshop that consists of courses that blend online, guided self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” classroom activities that require no computer. The workshop will cover courses 1-3 and offer all the supplies needed to teach the courses.


What’s in a workshop?


In-person instruction from an experienced computer science facilitator, including an intro to computer science, pedagogy, overview of the online curriculum, teacher dashboard, and strategies for teaching “unplugged” classroom activities.
