Limited Capacity seats available


Interest in AP Computer Science A and AP Computer Science Principles has skyrocketed in the past few years, and there is no indication that it will slow down. In fact the new AP Computer Science Principles Course blew way past enrollment expectations last year. Problem is, not many schools can keep up!

In the workshop we will first explore the various options for setting up both courses, then discuss relevant pedagogy including projects, and assignments. The last part of the workshop will focus on making a holiday card with Processing, a freely available Java/Javascript/Python programming environment available at https://processing.org/, and one of several options for implementing both AP Computer Science A and AP Computer Science Principles.  Please bring a laptop computer (Mac, PC or Linux) with Processing (https://processing.org/download/) and Google Chrome installed.
