K-5 Fundamentals

Educator Outcomes:  The Computer Science Fundamentals 1-day Intro workshop includes facilitation, curriculum guide, and ongoing support, totaling $110 per participant. Participants will see lessons modeled and have time to explore additional lessons for their grade. The curriculum courses allow for flexible implementation, and facilitators will help participants consider how they will implement the content. 

The new Deep Dive workshop is currently covered under sponsorship from Code.org and is available at no cost for groups of 10 or more. In this workshop, participants will dive deeper into the curriculum, discuss barriers they experienced while implementing, and learn more about best practices.

**Funding through the Computer Science Professional Development Incentive Fund can be used for all of our computer science professional development options.

Student Outcomes:  K–5 students will experience lessons both at and away from computers. They will create computer programs 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
