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.
The K-12 Computer Science Teacher Meet-Up on Thursday, November 17 from 5:00 to 7:00 will be held at Nextech’s new location in the Speak Easy Downtown at 47 S Meridian St. There will be food and drinks provided by Nextech and anyone can join for informal conversation about computer science education. Sign up at the link here today! If you are in town for the IBEA Conference it is only around a $10 Uber ride from the conference hotel and then you don’t have to pay for parking.
