Workshop: Bringing Computer Science to Your Home Classroom -
Do your students love computers, or are they thinking about a computer career? Do you need a high-quality computer science elective for a transcript? How can you provide a computer science education for your students when you aren't an expert yourself? Join us for a discussion about computer science, related college degrees, and today's high-demand software job market. We'll show how 4th - 12th grade students can learn what makes computer software really work and even write their own computer programs, websites, and video games!
