CS Institute, July 22-23 2019
The annual CS Institute is a collaboration between the SPARK! CS Program at St. Anne's-Belfield School, UVA Curry School of Education and UVA Department of Computer Science. The purpose of the CS Institute is to help K-12 educators from all disciplines learn about computer science and find ways to incorporate it into their teaching. Along the way, we will:
- Demystify computer science;
- Build a regional computer science education community;
- Increase access to CS for all students
SPARK!, U.V.A. Collaborate on Computer Science Institute
St. Anne’s-Belfield School SPARK! computer science program collaborated with the University of Virginia (U.Va.) Curry School of Education and Department of Computer Science to offer 55 local educators a two-day Computer Science Institute. The participating educators represented 15 different private schools, public school districts, after school programs, and post-secondary schools.
“We’re really excited to be partnering with SPARK! computer science for the Institute because we feel it’s really important to help teachers be able to integrate CS into their classrooms,” said Jennifer Chiu, associate professor of education at the Curry School.
