|Abstract:||We used design-based research to investigate an extended professional learning experience to prepare teachers to embed computational thinking in elementary science. Opportunities to interact synchronously in a community of practice - including through in- person engagement in embodied challenges, discussion, and resource sharing, appeared to productively support teacher preparedness to embed CT in their science teaching. However, asynchronous collaboration via an online platform was less effective. We describe planned adjustments for future iterations of the program.|
