What is CS4HS?


Dear teachers,

CS4HS (Computer Science for High School) is a Google sponsored program to promote computer science and computational thinking in the high school curriculum. FIU has received a 2013 CS4HS grant from Google's Education Group, and is delighted to offer a 3-day, hands-on workshop to regional high-school computer science, mathematics, and technology teachers/students.

Our goals are to provide teachers/students with
(1) ideas they can immediately include into their teaching/learning;
(2) a forum to share approaches with each other; and
(3) ideas and support for advancement in computer science teaching and learning.

Theme:

  • Embedded Systems/Robotics
  • Using FRDM Board and Raspberry Pi
  • With Processing and Python programming

Focusing on:

  • Hands-on training
  • Simple programming concepts
  • Designing python scripts
