In the Loop is a three day summer experience for 6th-12th grade teachers. Teachers of all subjects interested in incorporating computer science concepts into their classroom are welcome to attend!Sessions will be divided into three interchangeable “loops”: The Novice Loop designed for teachers of middle schoolers or beginner computer science teachers. The Expert Loop designed for those already familiar with or currently teaching computer science concepts. And The Issues Loop designed to explore issues facing teachers today and address the state of computer science education. Participants may attend sessions in a specific loop or choose sessions among all three loops for a customized experience.
