Middle and High School Students Demonstrate Computer Science Success Stories

Room: Red Level, Suite 15

Computer Science interest soars when students are introduced to concepts early. Countries such as England, Israel, China, and Vietnam are introducing CS in grades K – 12. Learn how CS education has impacted students in schools across Massachusetts. Students in five schools will describe what they have learned in their CS class; express how CS has impacted them and why they feel that CS education is important in preparing them for their future. Projects presented reflect each student’s creativity, problem solving and computational thinking abilities. In addition to becoming inspired innovators through their early exposure, students share their views of how CS can benefit all students in every aspect. Leave this session inspired to seek ways to introduce CS in both your middle school and high school programs. Our country’s national security, work force, and ability to lead in innovation depend on it!
