This hands-on session encourages everyone to bring their favorite laptop to experience FREE, virtualized opportunities for students everywhere to get their code on. Microsoft MakeCode is a web-based application that brings computer science to life for all students with fun projects, immediate results, and both block and text editors for learners at different levels. Walk away with a multitude of project ideas that meet CS and Colorado Academic Standards while giving students the ability to truly make their CS dreams a (virtual) reality!

Each MakeCode activity is tied to specific CS standards. During the presentation we'll walk through a variety of the activities and show how teachers can identify which standards are being met individually. The variety of activities work to meet almost the entire gamut of standards.
