Interested in getting on the "coding bandwagon," or learning what it's all about in the first place? Even if you teach a non-STEM subject, your students can benefit from the logic and problem-solving skills that come from learning about computer science. No matter the age or ability level, kids who learn to code gain confidence, build communication and collaboration skills, and get excited about learning. So why wait? We’ll also show you tools and strategies that will help you connect coding, computer science, and cybersecurity concepts into any subject, from language arts to math to art, all using totally free apps and lesson plans.

Session objectives: Participants will:
Discuss a variety of free apps and sites that provide age-appropriate computer science activities and lessons
Develop lessons that integrate computational thinking and computer science into any subject area and grade level
