Purdue University’s Department of Computer Science has opened up their PD4CS teacher support materials to all teachers after 3-years of testing and development. The NSF-sponsored project has supported hundreds of teachers in their preparation for teaching programming and other computing concepts.
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.
As part of their on-going effort to expand and support AP CS A teachers around the state and country, the AP~TIP IN program will be hosting a few 1-day workshops and live online webinars during the upcoming Spring semester.
