You Can Program, and Kids Can Too

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

Programming is not just for nerds and computer scientists, it is being used across all disciplines. You'll be able to see examples of some easy ways to start programming, including Scratch, Touch Develop, Google Apps Script, Swift, OpenSCAD, and Arduino. Regardless of what, or who, you teach you can find something here that will interest you. In an increasingly automated world, we can prepare students to direct and control the machines.
