In this interactive virtual workshop, Grades 4 to 6 educators new to Google’s CS First will learn how to use this free ready-to-teach introductory computer science (CS) curriculum. Students follow step-by-step instructional videos that introduce fundamental computer science concepts and build computer programs using Scratch, a block-based programming language.
During the workshop, teachers will review the CS First curriculum and test drive a CS First class from a student and teacher perspective. Teachers will walk away with a plan of action and strategies for starting to teach CS First in their classrooms. Most importantly, teachers will join the growing community of CS First educators from around the world.
