Computer Science Helps Touch the Future

I need a KCI Computer Science Crash course to bring innovative ideas to my school.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach in a STEAM/Project Based Learning school, with an emphasis on the Whole Child. I truly love these motivated students and their families, so we are continually trying to provide ways to better help everyone learn important foundation skills.

Curiosity is the basis of meaningful learning.

Our staff has worked so hard to learn new ways to reach our students. Research shows both parents and students are motivated by people that spark their minds with forward thinking subjects like Computer Science. Our school community needs someone who knows ways to customize this learning so everyone grows. Rather than me telling them what to learn, my goal is to invite them into ways to become a better teacher.

My Project

No great discovery or innovation happened solely on paper. A hands-on experience with KCI Computer Science Bootcamp experience is the very best way to help me experience, absorb, and understand deeper level Computer Science concepts. Research supports the idea that teachers learn best when they work with an engaged cohort and get both their hands and minds involved. Through this generous Pathfinders opportunity, I will not only receive stellar background knowledge, but also experience hands-on activities to help me create a Computer Science curriculum and support my practice and understanding of complicated concepts in ways that will go beyond this event.
