Title: “Puzzles, Patterns and Problem Solving: Helping Teens Build Computational Thinking Skills”
Description: Computational Thinking (CT) is a process that helps us create possible solutions to complex problems–in other words, a skill that teens will need to navigate their personal and work lives in the 21st century. From cooking to coding, many everyday skills, hobbies and occupational pursuits involve CT. In this interactive webinar, we will define CT and explore its four cornerstones. We will begin to think about how to help teens build CT literacy.
- Understand Computational Thinking as it relates to educational and career paths for teens.
