Teaching Coding, Physical Computing, and Computational Thinking with Dr Gary Stager

Learn how a project-approach to computer programming, robotics, and physical computing can serve a diverse student population while developing your own skills. This workshop will explore powerful ideas from computer science and engineering that may be employed in the solving of problems across the curriculum. A review of software and hardware options will be explored in addition to two focused programming and robotics activities. Participants will also have experience with the BBC Micro:bit, the Hummingbird Robotics Kit and other low cost "microcontroller development boards" offering great potential for bringing making, tinkering, and engineering to life in any classroom. Dr. Stager will model best-practices for teaching coding, physical computing, and computational thinking.
