Abstract:This research project focused on how Computational Thinking can be taught to students in upper secondary education (Dutch: bovenbouw vwo). For this purpose, a lesson series has been designed around the concept of Dynamic Programming. Motivation and comprehension played a central role in the design of the lesson series. The lesson series has been analysed by a panel of experts. Their feedback was used to design a second iteration. Two students in secondary education have participated in the lesson series and have been interviewed. Their findings are used to give further recommendations to improve the lesson series. The final product of this research project is a lesson series that can be used by teachers in the Netherlands and abroad to teach students basic understanding of Dynamic Programming and to teach them several Computational Thinking skills.
