This workshop will be dedicated to 6th-12th grade teachers and administrators, and CPDUs and a stipend will be provided to all participants.
“Information technology is permeating many aspects of daily life and is being integrated into businesses and products throughout society. Living in a digital age, students need to understand the tools that they are working with,” said Dr. Jiang Li, associate professor of computer science, “Computer Science is a way of thinking; it is a way of viewing the world. It develops students’ quantitative reasoning skills.”
Quincy University is the recipient of a CS4HS grant funded by Google Inc. The Google CS4HS program is an annual funding program to improve the computer science educational ecosystem by providing funding for the development and execution of CS teacher professional development worldwide.
