This will be run by a college board endorsed consultant, Debbie Carter from Lancaster Country Day School. It will be held at in room 107 of the College of Computing at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. For directions to the College of Computing Building see Barbara Ericson from Georgia Tech will assist.

This workshop is primarily aimed at teachers who haven't taught the AP CS course yet. But, experienced teachers may also find it valuable. Since both Debbie and Barb will be teaching we can do break out groups to cover advanced material.

We will expect you to have a firm grasp of Java basics. If you don't have much experience in Java we recommend that you take the Intermediate Programming and Systems Management June 28-July 1st 2005 workshop first.

The workshop will start at 8:00am each morning and end at 4:00pm each day except for the last day when it will end at 12:00pm. Registration will open at 7:30am the first morning of the workshop. Georgia teachers who attend the entire workshop will earn 3 PLUs.

Georgia Tech will pay for Georgia public school teacher's room and board, but not parking. Parking at the hotel is $10.00 a day. If this is a hardship for you please contact Dr. Maureen Biggers (
