We Teach_CS Summit, June 7-9, 2016, Austin, Texas
Computer Science education isn’t just about bits and bytes, it’s about helping today’s students become the technology leaders of tomorrow. As you open the world of coding and computational thinking to K-12 students in Texas, the TRC is opening new resources and networking opportunities to you with its inaugural WeTeach_CS Summit, June 7-9 in Austin coordinated by The University of Texas at Austin’s Center for STEM Education.
TRC Launches CS Network Blog
Opportunities for both teachers and students related to computer science, coding and computational thinking are becoming more prevalent due to growing awareness of the the importance of these fields in the 21st Century innovation economy. Unfortunately, finding these opportunities can be a real challenge as there has been no central clearinghouse for these kinds of resources and events in Texas. To address this communications challenge, the TRC launched the TRC CS Network Blog in May 2015. –Continue reading article
