Webinar Series

Make Code You Can Touch

Can coding enhance human imagination? Guest experts will explore how students can make their computational thinking visible through analyzing, creating, and remixing interesting algorithm components using Tinkercad Codeblocks. We will also share accessible, playful projects just in time for Hour of Code that will empower students to see themselves in computer science.

Please join us for one hour of PD on Thursday, December 2, 2021 at 4pm Pacific Time. 

Thank you for registering! You will receive a confirmation shortly. We look forward to seeing you at our next Teaching with Tinkercad webinar.
