See How Vernier Coding Activities Correlate to CSTA Standards
Computer Science Standards for 21st Century Learners
Today we use computing in all facets of our professional and personal lives, and the impact computing has will only increase in the future. Consequently, a foundational understanding of computer science is essential to becoming a well-educated citizen in the 21st century. Vernier understands this fact, and we work hard to support educators as they prepare students for tomorrow’s workforce.
The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) K–12 Computer Science Standards is a set of learning objectives that aim to provide the foundation around which educators can design a computer science curriculum. As more and more schools, districts, and states make computer science education a priority, our activities for coding and robotics give educators the support they need to meet CSTA standards.
Vernier and CSTA Standards
As coding becomes more prevalent in the modern classroom, Vernier continues to expand its products and teaching resources to address these new needs. Our coding and robotics technology supports educators as they help students learn computational thinking and build computer science skills. Learn how our coding and robotics solutions correlate to CSTA standards by building students’ ability to create and follow algorithms, model how information is communicated and organized, and more.
