About this Event

Cyber Fundamentals (Middle School) Workshop: August 5, 2019: 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Cyber Fundamentals with micro:bit is ideal for introducing block-based coding at the middle school level. The micro:bit is a versatile, affordable platform whose uses will grow with your students' skills. In this full-day workshop, teachers will work through the basics of block-based coding and the micro:bit.

Cyber Literacy (High School) Workshop: August 6- 7, 2019: 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Cyber Literacy builds strong cyber foundations by introducing the opportunities, threats, responsibilities, and legal constraints associated with operating in cyberspace. Cyber Literacy will use the cyber:bot platform to lay the foundation for further exploration into STEM and cyber. The cyber:bot is a micro:bit outfitted with a robotics chassis. In this two day workshop, teachers will learn how to build and program a cyber:bot using Python and learn projects and strategies for teaching with the cyber:bot.

Workshops will be led by subject matter experts from the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center. Participants should bring their own laptop or Chromebook. All teachers will receive a certificate of attendance as well as access to free online curriculum materials!

Ample free parking is available on site.
