Event description
An online and interactive computational thinking workshop for primary and secondary school teachers in Ireland.

About this event

This computational thinking workshop is intended for primary and secondary school teachers. Participants do not need to have any prior knowledge of computer science to attend. The workshop includes: an introduction to computational thinking (CT) for teachers, group work in breakout rooms with our CT materials, and collaboratively creating a lesson plan using our materials. The materials used in this workshop originate from internationally-recognised Bebras tasks that can be used without computers in the classroom.

This workshop is organised by the PACT team, Department of Computer Science, Maynooth University, with financial support from Science Foundation Ireland. Our teaching materials are adapted from our involvement with the International Bebras CT Challenge, through the Irish Computer Society’s/ICS’s National Bebras Challenge. See more information on our website https://pact.cs.nuim.ie.

See below an example of one of our Easter-themed CT tasks.
