The Project has enhanced the exemplary NSF-funded Beauty and Joy of Computing (BJC) curriculum by adding a number of real-world, problem-based robotic design challenges to ensure that the resulting curriculum is consistent with the pedagogic expectations of high school Technology and Engineering teachers.
The resulting curriculum contains everything that BJC offers, with the addition of a range of the robotic hands-on challenges. The curriculum is known as the Beauty and Joy of Computing: Technology and Engineering version (BJC-T&E).
The Teacher Page can be accessed in the same location. However, the Teacher Page is password protected for obvious reasons! Click on the GET IN TOUCH link and provide a district website and email address so we can verify that you are a teacher, and we will send the password information by email.
ExCITE uses an enhanced version of Snap! that allows students and others to control a micro:bit single board computer that is connected to the real-world using sensors and actuators!
