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.

Purdue University, in cooperation with the Indiana Hoosier Heartland CSTA, hosted thirteen teachers on campus for a three-day computer science teaching workshop from July 25th to July 27th, 2016. During the workshop, the teachers worked together to develop collaborative lesson plans, address the Big Ideas of the new Computer Science Principles course, and build the CSTA Community of Practice.
