Project GUTS’ CS in Science workshop offers interactive instruction from an experienced GUTS facilitators including an introduction to computer science, pedagogy, curriculum overview, and practice with the StarLogo Nova programming environment. The CS in Science curriculum features: use of a block-based programming environment on the web (slnova.org); daily lesson plans for teachers, videos, and supplemental extension resources; a modular design that allows for a variety of classroom implementations; and alignment to national science (NGSS) and computer science (CSTA) standards.
This is Project GUTS' PD that is part of the PUMP-CS PD Summits.
The course is designed to integrate Computer Science (CS) concepts into existing middle school science classes, especially in contexts in which a standalone CS course is not available. Helps students from all different backgrounds to engage in scientific inquiry by investigating topics of interest to their local communities and sharing their experiments and findings.
