I teach the computer science pathway at my high school. I am trying to build the program. I currently have 5 sections in 3 courses (ECS, AP CSP and AP CS A) in the pathway but they’re not filled up.
I am planning to send a presentation including student videos shots and some pictures to the 8th graders prior to their scheduling for high school courses. I see that code.org has a lot of useful videos/materials for promoting to parents/educators/administration but do any of you know of any resources that target a younger audience of 8th graders to get them to buy into the importance of CS?
