Full House for the 2016 Summer Institute
June 7 - June 11, 2016
The 2016 Summer Institute Research Participant application process has closed. We have a strong cohort of new and returning teachers who will receive free Professional Development in the use of the AgentCubes Online 3D game design curriculum and contribute computer science education data. We also welcome non-research Scholars coming to learn Scalable Game Design to use with students, helping us deliver our promise to NSF to move toward sustainability. Welcome 2016 Summer Institute Scholars!

Scalable Game Design Wyoming/Google CS4HS Professional Development
August 12 - 15, 2015
Western Wyoming Community College
Thanks to support from Google's CS4HS initiative, 15 Wyoming middle school and high school teachers will begin building a community of student learners to move toward taking and completing the new Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles course. Teachers will learn how to engage and motivate students through Scalable Game Design activities, and going beyond coding into computational thinking. Middle school teachers will work with their feeder high school teachers to nurture and encourage students to stay involved with computer science and programming, and support students to succeed when the AP CSP course is made available. The Wyoming teachers will part of a Scalable Game Design CS4HS professional Community of Practice that extends into Colorado and New Mexico.
