With support from Google’s CS4HS program, Santa Fe Institute’s Learning Lab is offering a free online course called “Computer Science Principles – Aligned Integration of Modeling and Simulation” (CSP-AIMS). This course prepares high school teachers to integrate computer modeling and simulation into AP CS Principles courses and builds the community of teachers who are offering rich computational thinking (CT) experiences through modeling and simulation.
The course will begin the week of November 2, 2015 and run six consecutive weeks, ending on December 11, 2015. Course materials will be posted weekly. CSP-AIMS leverages the existing University of New Mexico CS590 “Learning and Teaching Computer Science for All” professional development course in modeling and simulation and the UNM CS108 “Computer Science for All” course that were developed with funding from the National Science Foundation CE21 CS10K program.
