Computer Science Unwrapped

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The basics of computer science are so simple and intuitive, we do it every day... we run through our day making decisions based on present conditions, if (condition) do this ... else do something else... we shampoo, rinse and repeat (looping) and we save our information (data). But we are intimidated by how many different programs ... languages...interfaces...there are. So in this session, we will unwrap the basic understanding of computer science and apply it to how we think and then show how discovery learning and learn to fail models fit perfectly into our classrooms, providing intrinsic motivation.
