Abstract: Computation has become an essential part of today’s personal, educational, civic, and career living, which necessitates preparation of a generation of future citizens who are knowledgeable of computational thinking (CT) concepts and are able to apply CT skills in daily life and work. Because of CT’s use across fields, it is important that we take an interdisciplinary approach and ground the teaching and learning of CT in authentic and meaningful contexts with learners. This symposium explores different approaches of integrating CT into topics in formal settings. The six empirical studies of this symposium present designs of authentic environments that aim to infuse CT into plant science, literacy, ecosystems, general biology, and chemistry. These studies also report the findings of teacher and student learning from the implementations. Collectively these studies provide unique insights towards design recommendations, challenges, pedagogies, and opportunities in the rapidly developing STEM+C field.
