Student Showcase June 6 (District Board Meeting)

WHY:  Using a learning-by-designing approach 
our goal is to increase student exposure 
to STEM subjects and careers. 

 It is estimated that by 2018 there will be 1.4 million 
computer programming jobs with no where near 
enough students graduating with 
degrees to fill those jobs.  

Exposing students to computer programming 
will hopefully build interest and confidence 
in computer science.  

This project is designed to inspire students to create,
innovate and collaborate with technology. 

As students learn by designing basic computer programs 
on the iPad they are able to:

- think critically and solve problems
- collaborate on ideas
- progress at their own pace
- create anything they can imgaine
