Code.org and Young Audiences of Houston team up to show how visual arts and coding can be used in the classroom to teach geometry concepts, prepare students for college, and develop their creative problem solving skills. Young Audiences visual artist Liz Conces Spencer will take participants through an activity that demonstrates how geometry is used in visual arts. Karen North, Computer Science Education Consultant from Code.org and Pamela Ossorio, Tech Specialist at Pin Oak MS, will then show participants how to code the geometric patterns they created and observed. This interactive workshop will give you the tools you need to start using visual arts and coding in your classroom.

Teachers are performing artists in front of an audience every school day.
The art they produce is seen in every student’s smile.
They need time to rehearse. They need feedback. They need applause too.
They need freedom to create, so their audiences can create.
They build brains. Their art is the future.
