6th Graders and Computer Programming

Forming a new partnership with “Project Lead the Way”, proved beneficial for our 6th graders and our school district.  With “Computer Science” being a high school level course, our 6th graders rose to the challenge.  While the course had to be structured for their level, the students enjoyed the course so much, when surveyed over half of them expressed an interest in taking a more advanced coding class in the 7th grade.  The same training our 6th graders received (Python and App Inventor) this year will be taught this summer to high school students in the Upward Bound program at Trinity University.  I am proud of these 6th Graders for what they have learned, are currently learning and what they are able to do.
