The education system is rapidly changing due to three emerging forces: traditional minority groups are now the majority with English learners as the fastest growing population; standards in STEM are academically rigorous, and technological innovations are advancing fast. This presentation will address integration of science and computational thinking with all students, including English learners. First, the presentation will briefly describe New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards. Second, the presentation will describe how to integrate science learning and language learning with English learners. Finally, the presentation will describe how to integrate science with computational thinking and modeling.
