CSTA 2017. Rebecca wrote in –

Hi!

Today was my presentation at the Connecticut Science Teacher’s Association conference. I was able to give away 10 Circuit Playgrounds and get teachers coding within minutes. Everyone loved using Makecode and they were super excited to get code up and running on the boards. I did write up a blog post version of my slides on one of my sites. I also included a few pictures of teachers trying out coding for the first time. Feel free to share these in any way you would like. There will also be some news postings from the university I go to and I can send you links to that as well.

Thank you so much for giving me hardware to give away to teachers! I plan on joining Show and Tell this week as well to share what I did with talking to these teachers.
