Programming as an Empowerment Tool for Education

Bringing Computer Science (CS) to K12 can be an interesting context for implementing a comprehensive education view. In this session, we aim to share how a partnership between Ayrton Senna Institute, Departments of Education and Universities has made it possible to bring it to public schools in 10 cities of Brazil. The goal will be to discuss how teachers from different backgrounds and with no prior experience in the field are working to help students develop the 21st century skills through CS.
