Computational Thinking and Analytical Problem Solving, a CS4HS program sponsored by Google, is designed for teachers and administrators in grades 4-12. You will learn to code while developing practical apps with a Cybersecurity backdrop and user friendly design. Two action-packed days of insights and best practices will empower you to incorporate computational thinking in your teaching and to enthuse your students to explore this rapidly expanding field.

  • Receive year round support from world class faculty and opportunity to be a part of a community of practice for sharing resources and pedagogical techniques.
  • Learn about computational problem solving, basic coding skills and acquire the vocabulary to share concepts in the classroom.
  • Gain an understanding of Cybersecurity and Information Assurance and the role that computer science plays in other disciplines.
  • Prepare to convey the impact of Computer Science on people and communities in a way that engages and excites students.

Space is limited and the programs fill up fast. There will be follow up webinars and two additional meet-ups during the academic year. You will receive 20 hours of Professional Development credit from FDU as well as pedagogical support year round.
