Calling all middle and high school CS teachers! Please join us for a free course exploring Computational Thinking and Computer Science using the Python programming language and the Finch Robot 2.0. This course exists because of funding from Infosys Foundation USA and is available on their website. To access the course:

1. Sign up at https://pathfinders.onwingspan.com/
2. Once you have logged in, search for Python with the Finch Robot, or use this direct link to the course page.

Python with the Finch Robot is designed to provide a hands-on exploration of Python and robotics: You’ll use the Finch to learn about and practice a wide variety of computer science concepts, from algorithms to variables to loops to lists, and much more!  We’ll also discuss strategies that use robotics as a tool for engaging students in learning computer science and computational thinking.

Python with the Finch Robot is a self-paced, asynchronous course composed of more than 20 short videos. It is designed for middle or high school computer science teachers with some coding experience, but Python or robotics experience is not required. We expect it will take 8-15 hours for most teachers to complete. Signup at Pathfinders Online Institute to access it today.
