A group of about 100 K-12 teachers has completed a week-long summer institute, dubbed Scalable Game Design, at the University of Colorado Boulder focused on using game design to teach computer science. The group of STEM and language arts teachers also learned about teaching computational, critical thinking and problem solving literacy through activities such as student demonstrations of video games made with fruit, Play-Doh and USB cables. Funded by the National Science Foundation and Google CS4HS, the institute provides free training to accepted teachers from the United States at beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
