CS Frontiers: Engaging Curricula for Teachers and Students
No materials for the event yet, sorry!
CS Frontiers is a new course that is being developed for students who have successfully completed the AP Computer Science Principles course. This course is an alternative to AP Computer Science A, which focuses on Java programming. CS Frontiers is a project-based curriculum that teaches about distributed computing, computer networking, cybersecurity, the internet of things, and machine learning. It is meant to be hands-on, enabling students to work on problems that are culturally relevant and engaging. The majority of the curriculum utilizes NetsBlox, which is a collaborative, block-based programming environment that extends Snap!. NetsBlox enables students to work together on the same project remotely similarly to how Google Docs operate. More information is available at https://netsblox.org.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!
TurtleStitch is an activity and a coding environment. TurtleStitching is a mi...more

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!
We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...
Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...more
