At the start of the class the workshop students learned about the Shodor scientific method. They all had the chance to “think like a computer” when the worked in groups to figure out different ways to count to ten. After that Amy helped them think about how they know things and how to efficiently use Google. She asked them to work in groups of two and Google the boiling point of radium to show that sometimes Google gives you multiple answers and you should not always go with the first one. Then the class made a excel model showing a heat map. Once they finished using excel they played around a little bit with the agent sheets models that were made already on the Shodor web site.
