You don't have to be a computer science wiz to teach the concepts, thinking skills, and career paths associated with the field. This is a place to start to build your knowledge and confidence in computer science.
Learn how to help youth reflect and process experiences with patterns and trends in data to assist them in computational thinking.
Developing skills in computer science is important for any young person regardless of whether or not this is the career path. All young people will need to be able to use computational thinking to innovate and solve problems.
The 4-H experiential learning model helps young people understand that computer science is much more than just what happens on a computer. This approach develops leadership and life skills and prepares young people to be the innovators and problem-solvers of our future.
The facilitator works to enable active learning as youth work in small groups and use the strategies of computational thinking to design and describe their own unique monsters.
Explore what computer science is, why it is important for youth in your program, and how you can successfully teach computer science.
Learn how you’re a computational thinker, how computational thinking practices fit into other activities, and how to develop these practices with youth.
This course is designed to help anyone working with youth get comfortable with computer science and computational thinking.
