Workshop: BJC Middle School, Year 2

View on Snap!Con

Presented By: Dan Garcia


The Beauty and Joy of Computing is UC Berkeley's diversity-record-setting non-majors course that has achieved national recognition. It has been shared with over 800 teachers worldwide and has been endorsed by the College Board. Two years ago we started developing a Middle School version of the course, emphasizing functional programming, 2D and 3D graphics, student creativity, and engagement. We presented the first two units of the course at SnapCon 2019; since then we have continued to develop the next two units -- Media Computation and Hardware, and will present fun exercises from these units to the workshop participants.
