  2. Learn about new technologies in Computer Science,
  3. Exchange effective teaching methods and best practices among colleagues,
  4. Build relationships between Computer Science high school teachers and UT-Austin faculty.

The First Bytes Teacher’s Workshop is an opportunity to meet with peers from across the state to explore the challenges and opportunities for Computer Science education in Texas high schools and to invent ways to improve collaboration that will impact student learning and achievement. Participants will earn AP CS Continuing Education credit for full participation.
