Abstract: This symposium seeks to illustrate and discuss the salient elements of project design and design decisions of a two-year implementation effort in high school science classrooms focused on improving knowledge and skills in biology content, complex systems, and computational thinking using StarLogo TNG simulations. We present design challenges that emerged in the areas of 1) Professional Development and Workshop Design; 2) Designing for Computational Thinking Through Computational Modeling; 3) Curriculum Design and Development; 4) Issues in the Design of Learning Progressions; and 5) Designing Assessments for Larger Scale. Through interactive discussion with the CSCL audience, we hope to share experiences that will enable similarly oriented design researchers to build successful programs in real-world educational systems.
