We describe our early investigation of the integration of educational modules originally developed for a college-level entering students program (ESP) titled “Media Propelled Computational Thinking” (MPCT) into high school science, math, and engineering/technology courses. Primary objectives of MPCT include introducing students to imperative programming and reinforcement of foundational mathematical concepts. This report describes this evolving integration including early informal experiments and potential extensions using programming functions of ubiquitous graphing calculators.
