Exploring Computer Science (high school) quarterly PD

The quarterly PD for Exploring Computer Science is for ECS teachers to convene and prepare to teach the later units of the course that are not covered in the summer PD. The PD will be hosted at DePaul University, 243 S Wabash (room details forthcoming).

This year, we may pilot an option to attend the PD during the school week, so stay tuned for possible date changes (check in at cs4all@cps.edu and on our calendar).
