Computers, coding and more

STEM School

Computer science week at Timberline was awesome! Students K - 8 were able to learn about computers, coding and robotics. All students went online to Hour of Code to practice their programming skills and also used some apps on the ipads. By having students learn about the programming they are learning another language that will help them in the future. Students had to communicate with the technology to make the robot or the creature on the app do some sort of action. RTTT grant has been able to supply all students with a variety of tools that students can use to practice these skills, like cubelets, dash and dot and bitsbox. Students collaborated with each other to teach others about what they are learning and continue to build their skills. It was great to see how engaged students were and how they will be able to use the computer science learned in their every day lives.
