2nd-5th Grade

Students in 2nd through 5th Grade will be mainly using the Techsmart Coding Curriculum during Technology class. This course is aimed for students in 2nd 4th Grade who are looking to explore beginning computer science. Using curriculum created by TechSmart, a Seattle based EdTech company, students begin by learning drag-and-drop block-based coding. This will provide a strong foundation for students and would assist in a transition to writing line-based coding in Python, a language professional coders use. The course includes a variety of coding techniques, exercises, and projects. Coding encourages critical thinking and problem solving, as well as offers a fun, creative, and safe space to explore technology!

 

Students in 2nd-5th will also participate in digital literacy, internet safety, and other Computer Science lessons!
