Data is a powerful tool for making sense of the world, and computational thinking provides contexts and techniques to use data in a meaningful way in science instruction. This session will use computational thinking routines to incorporate NGSS Science and Engineering Practice 1: Asking Questions, into instruction and support student sense-making with data. Participants will engage in the question asking practice from a student perspective, apply computational thinking routines, and plan for future instruction using these techniques.
