Empowering Educators: Transforming Classrooms Through Camp CS and Computer Science Integration

Thanks to funding from the U.S. Department of Education’s K-12 Congressionally Funded Community Projects and House Representative Deborah Ross, the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation, in partnership with Wake County Public Schools’ Magnet Office, offered a unique professional learning experience for approximately 60 K-5 educators focused on integrating computer science education into classrooms across the district. 

This video blog highlights teachers’ experiences at Camp CS (Computer Science), where they gained confidence with integrating computer science standards, incorporating digital learning tools into their classrooms and engaging students and helping them become confident problem solvers, creators and collaborators in our increasingly digital world.
