The National Science Foundation funded QUEST CT Project invites 3rd – 6th grade teachers to a workshop to learn about exemplary lessons created and field-tested by classroom teachers from the QUEST CT Project. These lessons incorporate computational thinking (CT) in content area lessons. Teachers will be engaged in hands-on activities to explore effective use of technology and CT to increase student problem solving skills and knowledge. These lessons bring exciting experiences in science, language arts, social science and math. Example Lesson Topics include CT in Maker Space, Using CT through Data Investigations, Learning CT through Simulations and Digital Models, Abstraction and Problem Decomposition applied to Language Arts.
The QUEST CT project is funded by the National Science Foundation’s STEM +C program to promote the integration of CT in STEM learning and teaching.
