This workshop emphasizes the non-programming part of the new Computer Science Principles (CSP) course, especially the Data and Internet components. The sessions will focus on hands on activities that support student mastery of the Big Ideas of Computer Science Principles and how to approach the portfolios.

For more information on this new course see The National Science Foundation would like to have 10,000 teachers ready to teach this course by 2016-2017 when it will be offered as an Advanced Placement course. Please note that this course will not be an AP course until the 2016-2017 school year.

Thanks to our National Science Foundation grant we may be able to pay for the hotel if you live more than 30 miles from Georgia Tech for Sunday-Friday (2 teachers per room). We will let you know if your expenses will be covered after you register. We have limited funding for this so apply early if you need a hotel. If you would prefer a private room you can pay 1/2 the hotel cost which is $347.50. We do not cover alcohol or room service! Due to last minute cancellations and no shows, we require a $50 room deposit to be paid up front which will returned upon completion of the workshop. To pay your deposit, please visit our Online Marketplace. We will cover parking for teachers who stay at the hotel and reimburse parking for teachers who do not stay at the hotel. We will pay for lunch for all teachers on Monday-Thursday. Lunch will not be provided on Friday. Space is limited to 30.

Educators will be provided with workshop materials, lessons and handouts that they can readily put to use in the fall.
