Unfortunately CSPdWeek has been cancelled due to COVID-19
Unfortunately CSPdWeek 2020 has been cancelled due to public health concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see our CSPdWeek website for a statement from the CSPdWeek team.
CSPdWeek is a week-long residential professional development experience for computer science educators to support teachers and schools in offering inclusive and rigorous computer science learning opportunities. It is held at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, CO. Co-located programs include Bootstrap, NCWIT's C4C (Counselors 4 Computing), and The Beauty and Joy of Computing (AP CS Principles).
Let us introduce to you our new alternate unit:
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a term that we hear on a daily basis. Yet the topic is not taught explicitly to our learners, while we operate in a world that uses AI with promises of further AI usage to come. The aim of this unit is to demystify the topic of AI, with students gaining an understanding of terminology such as machine learning and deep learning.
ECS is pleased to announce the release of
An Electronic Textiles Unit for Exploring Computer Science
In our new curriculum unit, students explore electronic textiles (e-textiles): articles of clothing, accessories, or home furnishings with embedded electronic and computational elements. This curriculum is an alternate for Unit 6: Robotics. After conducting various studies on curriculum design, teaching strategies, student learning, and portfolio designs, this unit is ready for download and classroom implementation by ECS teachers.
