TCNJ’s School of Engineering and Center for Excellence in STEM Education has been actively leading professional development in Computer Science and Computational Thinking for K-12 educators since become a NJ partner with Code.org in 2016. The Professional Development workshops that TCNJ faculty and students facilitate consist of week-long training over the summer and four follow up sessions throughout the following academic year that empower middle school and high school educators. TCNJ has successfully helped to educate over 160 teachers in high school Computer Science Principles and middle school Computer Science Discoveries programs. Recently, New Jersey’s Commissioner of Education, Dr. Lamont O. Repollet, made an appearance at the last day of one of the workshops to support TCNJ’s efforts in leading STEM education. Additionally, over 100 elementary school teachers have been hosted for one-day sessions of Computer Science Fundamentals to enable them to provide early computer science exposure to their students. Pictured below are images from the Professional Development Workshops.
