Upcoming PD Opportunities
Robots on the Road: Learning Computer Science Skills with Micro:bits
9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
August 9 & 10, 2022, Copper Country ISD
Join us for a hands-on workshop to learn how to use the Micro:bit in the classroom. This two-day workshop facilitated by SquareOne Education Network is geared towards core content teachers in the 3rd-12th grade levels that are looking for fun, hands-on, cost effective ways to connect computer science standards and concepts to their existing curriculum. Workshop participants will receive a Micro:bit, various sensors, accessories, and knowledge on how to use these to build a robotic car and other fun projects.
Western UP participants will be eligible to submit a $500 mini-grant application for their school to help support computer science integration projects. Preference will be given to pairs and teams of teachers.
The workshop is partially funded by the REMC1 and a MiSTEM Network grant through the Michigan Department of Education.
