Imagine if grade 5-12 students had access to a tool capable of big data processing, data visualizations, math equations, and text formatting — all in a web browser. Such a tool would provide a real opportunity for simple, accessible learning, and it's cost-free — we call it Callysto.

The goal of Callysto is to seamlessly introduce students to "computational thinking" through a Jupyter notebook based platform. The ability to think analytically will be in high demand as students enter the progressively automated and digitally skilled future. Callysto's curriculum-based learning modules will support multifaceted problem solving through beginner level coding and data analysis. Our Callysto session will go over how our tool will help develop computational thinking in the classroom and what the next steps for teachers are.

Cybera and the Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences are proud partners on this federally funded CanCode project. Byron Chu (Cybera) and Michael Lamoureux (Innovation Coordinator at the Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Professor at the University of Calgary) will provide an overview of the project, demonstrate sample Callysto content and our future plans.
