I am looking forward to co-presenting Computational Thinking and the Arts in a STEM Environment with my colleague, Computational Science Instructor Bob Gotwals this week at the National Consortium of Secondary STEM Schools Professional Conference in Phoenix. Bob and I have enjoyed a great deal of dialogue on this topic over the past couple of years and first presented this session at the American String Teachers Association Conference in the spring of 2023. The talk at ASTA garnered a great deal of attention and enthusiasm from string educators of all levels. Additionally, I spent some time covering the topic with the Fine Arts instructors from NCSSM at our retreat at the opening of the school year. Again, there was great enthusiasm about the model and the possibilities contained therein. We are looking forward to presenting these ideas to colleagues from STEM institutions from around the country. We hope to see you at the session on Tuesday at 1:00 p.m.
