During this workshop, teachers will receive hands-on training and curricula that builds a strong cyber foundation for high school students. Subject matter experts and master teachers will introduce attendees to cybersecurity through robotics, programming, electricity, networking, and elements of liberal arts. In addition, teachers will learn about the opportunities, threats, responsibilities, and legal constraints associated with operating in cyberspace.

The training will span 5 days with a computational thinking introduction and block-based programming that scaffolds to a more complex text-based programming language (Python). It will culminate with a final projects done by participants.
July 24 – 27 | Logo Summer Institute 2017
The Logo Summer Institute is an intensive immersion in creative computing for K12 teachers, parents, and technology integrators. Our project-based approach supports computational thinking, and STEAM learning and teaching. The program is highly individualized to accommodate novices as well as more experienced participants, teachers of different subjects, and those who work in informal settings as well as in classrooms.
