Taught by Code.org facilitators who are experienced computer science educators, our workshops will prepare you to teach the Code.org curriculum.
Code.org is honored to partner with Loyola Marymount University for this professional development experience for educators interested in bringing more computer science and computational thinking to their classrooms. It is one of the premier engineering, science, and mathematics colleges in the United States This is a one-day workshop gives you full access to the NEW 2018 CS Fundamentals A-F Curriculum and all online and printed coding materials to use with your students. It's free. This Computer Science Fundamentals PD is perfect for both beginners to coding and teachers experienced in CS who want to learn something new.
This training is open to all teachers, administrators, TAs, technology and computer teachers/coordinators, and parent volunteers from any type of school. All participants will experience teaching "unplugged" CompSci concepts with a concentration on computational thinking. You'll leave confident and ready to get your students learning CompSci the following Monday. Breakfast coffee and bagels are provided and attendees have a one hour lunch to enjoy many great local options.
BirdBrain Hummingbird Robotics Kits will be used during a portion of the workshop. Attendees will have an opportunity to create their own STEAM projects that connect directly to CCSS and NGSS Standards. Mini-Makathon is a beginner friendly STEAM/Maker activity to bring together engineering, computer science, computational thinking, and the creative arts.

What teachers say about Stephen's workshops
"Steve was a kind and extremely helpful instructor. I had absolutely no knowledge of computer science and coding, but his patience and positive attitude made me more receptive and even excited to get coding into my classroom immediately. Thank you very much for all your help, Steve!"
"I felt this was an outstanding workshop that inspired me to bring more computer science into my students. One of the best things I took away from the workshop was that I walked away feeling I can get started right away. Steve is a great presenter that made a difficult subject approachable and enjoyable."
"It was very engaging and collaborative for us as educators, without any doubt, implementing what was learned with our students will be fun, engaging and boost their interest in computer science."
