IMPORTANT: A note about this course

Dear Course taker,

We are thrilled that you are coming along on this journey as we explore how best to use this new medium (a MOOC) to prepare teachers to offer the Project GUTS Computer Science in Science modules in school-day classes. This course is an experiment - we expect there will be bumps in the road so please be patient.  We expect to be uploading new materials as we learn more about what you need to be successful in this online course. 

*** Note that the material was originally created for classroom teachers and thus, the text was written for classroom teachers planning to implement the activities with their students.  Our intent is that you first experience the curriculum as a STUDENT and complete all activities, then go back and reflect on the curriculum as a TEACHER planning to implement the activities.  ***

Please speak up!  Let us know in the forums if you need anything (we will be monitoring them daily).  We can also set up Google Hangouts to help you through a problem or explain a difficult concept.  Stay connected with us on Facebook (group name: Project GUTS) and Twitter (follow @projectguts).  If there is a problem with the course site, we will keep you posted through these alternative venues.

Thank you and best wishes,
--The facilitators of the Project GUTS CS4HS online PD course.
