A wave of interest from teachers, administrators, parents and students is sweeping across the US to expand and diversify student access to computer science knowledge and processes. And because it is now commonplace that scientists, engineers, and computer scientists often work together, the Next Generation Science Standards include mathematical and computational thinking, as well as the development and use of models and simulations, as two of the eight practices. Skeptical but intrigued? Or ready to jump on board? Join us to hear two of the nation’s top experts discuss how computer science is increasingly interconnected with science, what these NGSS practices might look like in middle and high school classrooms, and the professional learning and resources currently available.
