About the Session:
Overwhelmed with requests to help students with STEM literacy? This session will take those who have never done coding and programming before through a simple approach to learning the foundations of all computer languages. These activities are steeped in math, science, and computer science concepts which will help youth realize the connection between what they are learning and how that intersects with STEM careers. But you don’t have to be an expert in any of these areas to have fun coding. Free resources using familiar technology will help you AND your youth Get With The Program!
All workshop participants will receive a 365 day subscription license of TI Nspire CX Premium Teacher Software to use to code and for use to explore what you have learned after the workshop!
