If you didn’t get enough student coding camps and teacher professional development this summer, don’t worry the UT Dallas Center for Computer Science Education & Outreach has you covered.
It’s been a busy summer for our WeTeach_CS teachers. We started off with the 2017 WeTeach_CS Summit and Deep Dives, then sent our Certification Prep workshop team on a Tour of Texas. Helped teachers bring Math and CS together through Bootstrap, learn to print in 3D, and even attend APSI workshops, not to mention all the training our WeTeach_CS Collaboratives accomplished this summer.
Karen North, Texas’ own Computer Science Champion of Change, along with Pamela Ossorio (Pin Oak MS, Houston ISD) will be presenting Coding in the Arts at the 2017 Houston Arts Partners Conference on Friday, September 15 at 10:30 AM. This STEAM focused session, combining computer science thinking with creative skills, pairs well with the HAP conference which seeks to integrate arts education with other subjects.
