Our friends at BirdBrain Technologies have launched a brand-new course for middle and high school computer science teachers on the Pathfinders Online Institute. In this hands-on offering, educators will use the Finch Robot to learn a wide variety of computer science concepts.
Don’t have a Finch Robot, no problem? We’re partnering to give the first 100 U.S. public school and charter school teachers who apply a free Finch. To apply for a robot, click here.
This self-paced, asynchronous course will be broken into 20 short videos that will cover everything from algorithms, to variables, to lists, to loops, and so much more! While prior Python or robotics experience is not required, teachers who take this course should have some experience with block or text-based coding.
