NewBoCo Code.org CS Fundamentals Workshop Request
We are excited that you are interested in NewBoCo hosting a CS Fundamentals Workshop at your location.

CS Fundamentals workshops are 1-day, 8 hour workshops that provide K-5 teachers experience with computer science lessons and resources, as well as time to work on an implementation plan. Any teacher, no matter what background, no matter if they have or have not had prior computer science experience, is welcome to attend.

Each workshop can accommodate up to 32 teachers with a minimum of 12 confirmed participants for a private workshop at your location. Workshops are facilitated by trained local facilitators.

All you need to provide is a space to accommodate all attendees, internet connection, and excited participants. We will provide all materials, food, and supplies. All attendees will need to bring a laptop or chromebook to the workshop. If it is easier at your location to be in a computer lab, we can use your computers.

There are now two CS Fundamentals workshop options: Intro and Deep Dive. The Intro workshop is the updated version of the original CS Fundamentals workshop that exposes participants to what computer science is and is not, provides experience with lessons from the curriculum, helps participants explore the teacher resources online, and provides time for participants to consider implementation and get their class sections setup in the teacher dashboard. There is now a subsidized fee of $110 per participant associated with the Intro workshop as Code.org has transitioned their sponsorship to cover the Deep Dive workshops for the 2019-20 year. The Deep Dive workshops are designed for teachers who have implemented at least some of the curriculum already and is customized to address any questions, barriers, and challenges participants have. Instructional strategies and activities to support teachers in their computer science journey provide a welcoming environment for teachers to grow. Deep Dive workshops through NewBoCo are sponsored at no cost to teachers with a minimum of 12 confirmed attendees during the 2019-20 year.

More about Code.org Computer Science Fundamentals
Code.org's Computer Science Fundamentals is a curriculum designed for K-5. Each course (one per grade level) has about 15 lessons that may be implemented as one unit or over the course of the year. Students create computer programs and experience hands-on lessons that will help them learn to collaborate with others, develop problem-solving skills, and persist through difficult tasks. They will study programming concepts, computational thinking, digital citizenship, and develop interactive games or stories they can share. Code.org's Computer Science Fundamentals is for students (and teachers) new to Computer Science. Each course (A-F) begins with a grade appropriate entry point and structured ramp up concepts. The progression of courses builds on each other to ensure continuing students learn new things. Learn more here: https://code.org/files/csf-one-pager.pdf
