Coding & Tinkering

Coding

As 2nd Quarter begins, we will be engaging with important aspects of Digital Citizenship with the Middle School classes. Keeping themselves from being harmed, or from harming others, while using electronic devices is becoming increasingly important, and unfortunately, in many instances the damage is very difficult, if not impossible, to overcome. Please stay well informed and very close to your student(s) with respect to this, as we will want to help them negotiate the potential pitfalls of technology use, at least until their pre-frontal cortexes have fully developed! ;)

Students are continuing to assemble projects such as drones, robots, and electronic kits, and making notes on software needs and/or bugs that they encounter. We have also begun some coding projects using Google CSFirst and Scratch.
