Event Details

 MassCAN, a public and private partnership coalition is excited to provide underwriting for Massachusetts Math and Computer Science teachers* interested in participating in a three day Bootstrap workshop!

What is Bootstrap?

Bootstrap is a curricular module for students ages 12-16, which teaches algebraic and geometric concepts through computer programming. At the end of the module, students have a completed workbook filled with word problems, notes and math challenges, as well as a videogame of their own design, which they can share with friends and family.  You can learn more about Bootstrap World here

What will I learn?

The interactive 3 day workshop will be taught by Emmanuel Schanzer, founder of Bootstrap. During the workshop you will:

  • See the curriculum in action
  • Explore the research and pedagogy
  • Investigate the cognitive challenges for students struggling with Algebra
  • Take a deep dive into the activities and technology  with a master teacher
  • Arm yourself with the tools to advocate for Bootstrap in your school or school district
  • Go home with a videogame that you created!

 What teachers are saying about their Bootstrap Training....

"I was lucky enough to attend the workshop in Chicago. What a WONDERFUL USEFUL PD day -- the first one in a long while to get me excited about teaching Algebra for the 20th year. If you do come back -- I would love to know about it."
-- Aimee Smith, Chicago Public School
