Learning Computer Science Through Making

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Maker/DIY movement has become popular everywhere, including in education.
There are many overlaps between making and Computer Science. This session will
explore ways to connect Computer Science to other disciplines through maker projects.
Using example projects that have already been successful, we will share resources and
ideas for creating projects that cover a variety of Computer Science topics. Using the
CSTA and Common Core standards, we will show how many of these projects can cover
multiple standards and be engaging and rewarding.
