CSEd Week 2017

Boulder Computer Science Education Week is one week of all things Computer Science!

We’ll make video games. There will be hardware and video game controllers. The robots will want to play. Maybe you don’t even want to sit down at a computer but just want to jump around while learning about coding? You can do that too. We want you to bring your Rube Goldberg machine to the library and help us figure out how to connect them all into one really big Rube Goldberg machine. Wanna learn how to do 3D printing? We’ve got that covered as well. The best coders can even win super sweet prizes! All of this with the help of local educators from schools, universities and Makerspaces teaming up with companies from all over Boulder County. It’s bound to be a ton of fun for all ages, we hope to see you there….

 

Boulder Computer Science Education Week Preview

CSED Preview is two days of workshops intended to help educators- traditional and non-traditionalwho teach Computer Science and Makerspace related activities. Students, parents, artists and anyone else with an interest in teaching are also welcome. We’re all educators after all. We’ll have workshops for people who teach all ages and all sorts of topics. New to teaching Computer Science? We’ve got a lot of stuff to help out beginners and those with more experience. Looking to level up or just play with some robots? We’ve got all that and more…. We’re a bunch of super friendly educators, companies, parents, kids and… you guessed it… robots who want to help you and your students learn more about Computer Science.

We’ll have a schedule up soon… in the meantime here are just some of the topics we’ll be covering at the Boulder CS EDU Preview events:

  • Making Video Games with Scratch
  • CS Unplugged- Computer Science on the Playground without Computers
  • Robots!
  • Makerspace and Innovative Space Upkeep and Maintenance Tips
  • More Robots!
  • Text Based Programming for Beginners with JAVA or Python (TBD)
  • Making Video Games
  • International Outreach with Scratch and East Africa
