Google CS First Advanced: Game Design

May 20, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
Allegheny Intermediate Unit, 475 East Waterfront Drive
Homestead, PA 15120 United States
+ Google Map

Google asked teachers to create CS First as an easy-to-approach curriculum for teachers without computer science backgrounds or experience. There are nine themes, ranging from Easy to Challenging, that teach computer science by breaking it down into smaller, easy-to-master modules. The themes help students make the connection between computer science and things they already do, like storytelling, sports, or playing video games. This session will be for those familiar with CS First, and we will dig deep into the GAME DESIGN theme. Experience with block-based coding is preferred.Teachers have access to a library of videos that teach the concepts, lesson plans, and answer keys to help you check student programming solutions. Be sure to bring your laptop or Chromebook, as this will be a hands-on session.
