STEMteachersNYC invites elementary school teachers to join a unique, collaborative community over Summer 2021 and 2021-22 school year to incorporate computational thinking into your existing curriculum!
The earlier students engage with computational thinking strategies, the more ready they are to engage with computer science fields in later years. Over the course of one two-day ‘launch’ workshop and a series of shorter working sessions over the school year, participants will engage with practical tools developed by Cornell Tech’s TIR teachers, to adapt and incorporate the Barefoot Computing Framework of computational thinking concepts and skills into your existing curriculum and your school’s long term goals.
- Time commitment: 2-Day (virtual) Launch PD workshop (6 hrs each) and a total of 6 hrs ongoing virtual support over the 2021-2022 school year.
- COST: FREE to participating teachers.
- CTLE will be offered
- Led by Greg Benedis-Grab, Juliette Guarino Berg and Kate Macaulay of STEMteachersNYC
- Reunions held on-site at the Cornell Tech Roosevelt Island Campus
