Computer science is essential for almost every career in today’s world and is key to expanding opportunities for all students. Our mission is to help educators engage K-12 students in computer science through Project-Based Learning (PBL). Our standards-aligned projects help students explore the impacts of computers on our daily lives and excite them about future opportunities.
Defined's computer science PBL includes hands-on projects that are based on real-world situations in STEM careers to give K-12 students the opportunity to apply standards and skills across subject areas. Our engaging projects include career-connected tasks that highlight computational thinking, problem-solving, and application of computing skills, such as coding.
Defined’s computer science PBL empowers students to build the critical skills they need to succeed in college, careers, and life.
Engaging All Students in Computer Science
Each computer science project asks students to conduct a performance task using their classroom knowledge and skills to solve a real-world problem. The tasks empower learners to achieve and demonstrate competency using technology applications.
These engaging real-world projects are designed to provide students with an opportunity to apply standards and future-ready skills across subject areas.
I have discovered Defined Learning is a great tool to help me create relevant lessons. The supplementary curriculum provides students with research resources, videos, and project prompts that encourage students to think outside the box and put them in real-world situations.- Anthony Johnson, SW Regional & RSS District Teacher of the Year & TED-Ed Innovative Educator, Salisbury, North Carolina
