Cambridge Public Schools is committed to increasing Computer Science learning for ALL students. This June we are offering all sixth grade students a new opportunity to participate in a variety of computer science experiences in what we are calling a “CS Playground.” Our goals for students include:
- Exposure to computer science concepts and ways of thinking
- Spark an interest in computer science topics
- Create community and school connections
Students will spend approximately two hours rotating through rooms with different types of computer science experiences. Much like on a typical playground, we hope students at our CS Playground will be able to self-select an activity in each room, socialize with peers and community partners, and be hands-on in their experiences.
