About this Project:
Our design process is the area where we show the storyboard, napkin sketch, and happy path. Each of these topics will show you how the app works and what the outcome would be at the end. We have come up with our idea of the app by listening and taking notes on meteors that entered our classroom throughout the day. By them teaching us about the topics of memory loss and depression it showed us how we can get our app rolling.
Our project works by clicking on the game or feature you want to use on the home page. It will bring you to the page and you can use it.

What I do all day at work?
I help teachers figure out how to start teaching computer science to their students. I design activities that the teachers can do with their students, model that lesson for them, and then share resources to make computer science fun and engaging for learners of all ages.
I chose to study biology and pre-med since I had experience with them, knew that I enjoyed them, and knew that I could do well in them. I was intrigued by CS, but I didn't want to take a class, risking thousands of dollars in tuition on a subject that I didn't know if I would be good at or enjoy. I distinctly remember seeing the CS majors' projects, programming robots to play music and dance around the floor, and wishing that I could do that...yet I never did.
Fast forward a few years, and I am a high school science teacher. A friend tells me about an opportunity to be trained in something called Exploring Computer Science, an introductory high school curriculum for students with little-to-no background in CS. This is perfect! I can provide my students with the opportunities that I wish I had in school. I ended up creating a pathway for students to take ECS, AP CSP, and AP CSA, but I knew that I had done all I could at that school.
I left to become a professional developer. I now spend my time designing and implementing trainings for K-12 teachers who want to start teaching CS, either as a standalone class or integrated into another subject area. And I still occasionally run coding events for kids at my local library.
