Preparing Monterey County teachers for the changing careers their students will pursue in the future, the Monterey County Office of Education hosted its first annual Computer Science, Coding, and Robotics Jam Session on December 2, 2017. Eighty educators from throughout Monterey County and across Northern California interacted with experts in Coding, Robotics, and Computer Science.

This unique opportunity to co-learn, co-create and “jam” with educators and experts who are working in dynamic ways to change education, as we know it, was a first for Monterey County. Attendees engaged in hands-on professional development built to help promote computer science, robotics, and coding. At the sessions, attendees learned skills they could implement the next day, while gaining a strong foundation in Coding, Raspberry Pi, Coder Dojo, Google CS First, Computer Science Principles, Connections to the Next Generation Science Standards, and Game Designing & Animation.

The day also featured Millennium Charter High School faculty and students leading demonstrations in Animation and Game Design and Salinas High School faculty and students leading demonstrations in Robotics.

Thank you to all who attended this unique day of learning and fun!
