  • Interdisciplanary Computer Science
  • K-5, Middle School, High School
  • Curriculum, ideas, resources, discussion!
Are you interested in teaching coding in your math class? Have you considered an interdisciplinary project-based unit with the physics teacher? Are you looking to show your computer science students how relevant CS concepts are in their core subject classes? Do you need project ideas for your computer science classroom?

This session explores how interdisciplinary units can be used to reinforce and extend student learning. It’s also a great way to engage learners who haven’t considered computer science. We’ll present several project units that integrate computer science with math, science, social studies, and art. We’ll discuss how these units might be implemented in a computer science class, core subject class, or somewhere in between. You will leave this session with ideas, curriculum, and resources for your next interdisciplinary computer science project using CodeHS.

This session will focus on projects and strategies for middle school and high school, but everyone is welcome! (UPDATE: Now featuring K-5 Interdisciplinary concepts!!)
