Health classrooms are ideal places to introduce health technology and computational thinking because these classrooms establish a foundation for student’s perceptions and choices in health. We are working to integrate computer science concepts into the curriculum that K-12 health teachers are already using in the classroom. We are focusing on the topics of nutrition, sexual health, and information seeking. The new lessons we develop will be available on the Project eCSite health webpage.
