Teachers participating in Science+C integrate curriculum-enhancing Science+C units in their current core Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses. The activities include tools and techniques where students use, decode, and modify computational models in support of the Massachusetts Digital Learning/Computer Science (DL/CS) and science standards.
Science+C enhanced courses have seven computational thinking units inserted into existing science curriculum.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
Each Science+C computational modeling unit is a three-day sequence of lessons
DAY 1 | LESSON 1
Exploring and Using the model to conduct experiments
DAY 2 | LESSON 2
Reading and Decoding the model for understanding
DAY 3 | LESSON 3
Evaluating and Making Modifications to the model
Each Science+C lesson follows a similar pattern
