Originating Calendar EtoysIllinois Event Calendar

Supported by Google and the University of Illinois, this CS4HS summer workshop is aimed at teachers who are looking for exciting content for teaching beginning programming at the high-school or middle-school level. Join us as we explore the Etoys programming language as a platform for attracting students into the field of computing. Etoys has been used successfully in informal and enrichment education venues from first grade through high school around the globe.
