“Exploring Computer Science” at the MGHPCC


While children play, teachers work: It may still have been the summer vacation, but to prepare them to offer a new introductory computer science class to their students beginning this fall, teachers from a dozen area high schools attended a week long professional development workshop at MGHPCC in early August.

The workshop, which was part of a statewide program organized by the University of Massachusetts Amherst as part of the Massachusetts Exploring Computer Science Partnership (MECSP), was supported by a $40,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.
