Introduction to Computational Thinking with the Northern Coding Academy

What does it mean to think like a computer? How can coding concepts help students across subjects? From the applications on our smartphones to the life-saving equipment in our hospitals, technology plays a vital role in our lives. Students exposed to computational thinking concepts early on will have an easier time learning the computer science skills which will allow them to succeed later in life. Teachers of all subjects can benefit from incorporating these concepts into their curriculum.

Join us as we explore the core computational thinking concepts and how to apply them in your own classroom, across curriculums and grades. Dive into hands-on computational thinking and coding activities for you and your students. Teachers of all subjects welcome -- no coding experience required!
