  • The importance of Computational Thinking (CT) as a goal of science education is increasingly acknowledged. This study investigates the effect of computationally-enriched science curriculum on students’ development of CT practices. Over the course of one school year, biology lessons featuring the exploration of NetLogo models were implemented in the classrooms of three 9 grade biology teachers at an urban public secondary school in the United States. One-hundred thirty-three biology students… CONTINUE READING
