The flexibility of this conference allows you to attend in a multitude of ways. You can choose strictly face-to-face at Salem HS, live-streamed/virtual from the comfort of your home, or a mix! There will be learning lounges located at Salem HS for you to utilize throughout the day for attendees wanting to do both face-to-face and virtual options.

Are your students ready to move past block coding like Blockly, Scratch Jr., and Scratch? Using Bitsbox, students will learn to write code and create apps. As a FREE web-based coding system, it offers students the opportunity to build on their coding basics and create apps that come to life using script coding. Diving even deeper into coding Bitsbox offers support materials that have step-by-step instructions teaching students how to write the code that has been hiding behind all of the drag and drop block coding. It is a natural step for students who have been using block coding to actually begin writing the code and creating their own apps.
