Due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic, the Paul G. Allen School has decided that we will offer CS4Teachers in an online format for summer 2021.

August 2 - August 6

9:00AM PT to 12:00PM PT with optional afternoon office hours

Each day will include a morning talk or keynote, group work, as well as two sessions that will dive into computer science topics.

The program will cover a range of topics in CS and CS education, including: mobile app development, data science, data structures and algorithms, teaching best practices, and cross-curricular CS integration. We will also discuss issues related to equity, diversity, and justice in computing, both in and out of classrooms. For all topics, materials will focus on enabling teachers to incorporate these topics into their classrooms. Attendees will leave better prepared to teach topics or courses related to computer science across the curriculum.
