CSforMichigan: Workshops

CSforMichigan 2023 is a unique learning opportunity to connect statewide work in the areas of Computer Science, MITECS and Computational Thinking and this year's event features three separate learning sessions (Workshops, Leadership Summit & Education Conference)

About this Event

CSforMichigan’s Workshops will feature two time slots on the morning of 11/2 with each workshop being two hours length.  We will have multiple topics to pick from in each slot.  The workshops will give attendees the opportunity to not only learn about key CS topics and resources, but also the time to engage and experience the topics personally with guided support from our presenters.  Our grid is below, but please review the in-depth descriptions and presenter information on our workshop info sheet.
