    #2. Watch and interact in one of two ways:

    In-class: If students are learning in-person, only the teacher needs to register. Teachers should project the tour in class and use a mouse on the large screen to answer interactive questions.

    Remote Learning: Teachers can reserve seats for up to 100 remote students during registration. After registration is complete, we will email the teacher a list of unique links for each remote learner. Teachers can distribute these links how they see best. Remote students can also register for the tour themselves using the registration link.

    **Want to watch on your own? Anyone can sign up!

Teacher Toolkit

Our Teacher Toolkit provides educators with slides, worksheets, and extension activities. Use these materials to dive deep into computer science learning and to set students up for success before, during, and after the tour. The toolkit also includes a recorded interactive video to share with any students who cannot attend the live tour.
