Mapped to CTSA standards, CSD takes a wide lens on computer science by covering topics such as problem-solving, programming, physical computing, user-centered design, and data, while inspiring students as they build their own websites, apps, animations, games, and physical computing systems.

Whether you’re brand new to computer science or an experienced teacher looking for new strategies to help build your students future-ready skills, the CSD workshop is a great way to get started.

Training Format:

  • One 5-day summer workshop (virtual or in-person), which will fully prepare educators to utilize curricula and teacher support systems.
  • Four 1-day (Saturday) OR eight ½-day (weeknight) workshops during the school year when teachers will reconvene for ongoing training and just-in-time support.
