IndyPy, a group of Python developers located in the greater Indianapolis-area, would like to welcome any interested educators and their students to participate in their monthly meetups. Current meetups are held face-to-face in downtown Indianapolis, but future meetings may be live-streamed if interest levels in the meetings increases.
Purdue University’s Department of Computer Science is encouraging Indiana K-12 students to participate in their annual Programming Challenge held in conjunction with CS Education Week (Dec. 5 – Dec. 11, 2016). The problems are designed for students to work on in teams of up to 4 students. Students may submit solutions to any of the three problems, and each problem will be looked at independently. The best solution for each problem will win a prize, and all students with correct solutions will have their name published on the Purdue Computer Science website.
This week we will have an opportunity to meet up with one another during the annual Indiana Business Educators Association conference in Indianapolis. In addition to the excellent sessions planned for computer science teachers (see below), we will also be treated to a Thursday night social event sponsored by Nextech.
