More News: Technology Enrichment/Elective Classes Begin!
Students in grades K-2 and 3-5 began their first session of our brand new, trial run of a Technology Enrichment Class. In these grades, students have the opportunity to spend an extended time learning more about coding through Code.org lessons, Scratch, or Swift Playgrounds.
Our Grades 6-8 Technology Elective begins next Friday due to SEADS. Students in these grade levels have the opportunity to extend their technology experience in one of two areas:
- Coding/Computer Programming: This will take place through their choice of program including Swift Playgrounds, Python (Code Academy), or AppLab, GameLab, and WebLab (Code.org). Students will receive additional instruction as needed, however, this time will predominantly be self-paced through online tutorials and lessons.
- 3-Dimensional design: All of their design work will be done using the online program TinkerCAD. Students who select this option will be given a choice of 3 different design challenges. Their task will involve conducting research on their selected topic and then creating a 3-dimensional model using TinkerCAD. Students will go through the engineering design process, with a strong emphasis on revision/redesign. Final designs will be printed using our 3D printer.
