There are so many more CS Heroes than the few that are showcased at CSEdWeek.org/Teach, and they exist in all industries and communities. Students will research additional computer science heroes and the positive influence of their work. They will identify someone who uses CS to help others and create a poster to showcase their CS Hero. Students will be able to plan poster content, design posters, and share their posters with others.
The presentation is an extensive slide deck that provides the lesson plan with vocabulary and graphic organizers, sample posters and templates, and an ‘unplugged’ version of the activity. There are both K-5 and 6-12 versions of the lesson materials. Make a copy to remix the lesson.
