Twenty-three high school teachers from
all over the nation participated in a training
workshop called “CS4HS: Computational
Thinking and Computational Doing”
The workshop, held from June 25-27 2010, and sponsored by ATLAS and Computer Science, was aimed at teaching teachers how to use computing and technology in the classroom.
The teachers learned how to program a "Frogger" game, as well as an Ant Farm used to teach various math and probabilities concepts in a fun and engaging way.
ATLAS director John Bennett, who is a computer science professor, was among the speakers for the workshop, which was conducted by CU Computer Science professor and ATLAS Board member Clayton Lewis and Alexander Repenning, also of Computer Science.
The event was sponsored by Google and AgentSheets Inc., which is a game development software program company founded by Repenning.
