Middle School CS in Science Videos

Code.org has partnered with the award-winning Project GUTS (Growing Up Thinking Scientifically) to deliver a middle school science program, CS in Science, consisting of four instructional modules and professional development for the introduction of computer science concepts into science classrooms within the context of modeling and simulation.

The videos were created as part of the CS in Science Professional Development Program. The ten videos are intended for teachers to build their background knowledge to get started in the computer modeling and simulation and to use the four modules in the CS in Science Curriculum.

The videos introduce teachers to the curriculum materials and tools, agent-based modeling of complex adaptive systems, using computer models in scientific inquiry, how to use models in the classroom environment, and more.
