Administrator and School Counselor session on Computer Science

November 8, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Computer science opens more doors for students than any other discipline in today’s world. Learning even the basics will help students in virtually any career—from architecture to zoology. Just as we teach students how to dissect a frog, or how electricity works, it’s important for every 21st century student to have a chance to design an app or an algorithm, or learn how the Internet works.

Battelle Education in partnership with Code.org (a non-profit computer science curriculum provider) is dedicated to expanding statewide access to computer science, and increasing participation of women and underrepresented minorities.  Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn CS.  Reaching this vision requires professional learning for principals, school counselors and teachers.

Join us on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 from 10AM-12PM for a Computer Science Administrator and School Counselors workshop. Learn more about what Computer Science is and how to get members of your staff prepared to teach computer science.

Who is this meeting for?

Principals and school counselors who have teachers being trained to teach Computer Science Principles or Discoveries (Middle School) or are interested in bringing foundational Computer Science courses to their school

What will I learn?

We have four main goals for this workshop

  • Understand why CS education is important for students in Ohio (and across the country)
  • Understand what the Code.org programs are about
  • Understand who should take these courses
  • Have a strategy for recruiting students

We will be meeting Battelle in Columbus, Ohio. Lunch will be provided directly following the meeting. RSVP now as space is limited. You must RSVP to participate.

Interested in learning more but unable to attend on November 8th? Contact Kelly Gaier Evans at gaierk@battelle.org so we can get you added to the list for future sessions.
