WiiSTEM Teacher Academy 2010

WiiSTEM Teacher Academy is a professional development for Elementary and Middle school teachers. At this academy, Scratch and Alice, two object-oriented programming languages, were taught to interested teachers in two locations, Halifax and Goochland. This five-day workshop took place on June 14- 18, 2010 in Halifax and June 21-25, 2010 in Goochland.

There were ten elementary and middle school teachers per site and selection was based on the teacher willingness to create educational games and teaching modules as well as their commitment to the two programs. Teachers were given incentives for this workshop.
