Seeking to help students develop as critical thinkers, educators are incorporating project-based learning and design thinking across the curriculum. In order for these strategies to be effective, however, thinking skills need to be developed through a scaffolded process. Computational thinking is the universal language that enables students to break problems into manageable parts, observe patterns and trends, identify principles related to patterns, and develop step-by-step instructions for solving problems. In this interactive workshop, participants will understand skills they already have and how to develop these further to enable all students to become more resilient problem solvers.

1. Participants will learn the major components of computational thinking and how the process develops skills for resilience in students.
2. Participants will engage in hands-on activities which will provide practice in using computational thinking to solve problems.
3. Participants will develop a variety of strategies to incorporate computational thinking into students’ project-based learning and design thinking.
