Computer Science Pilot Showcase
Kids can learn to code! Come see the amazing results of an innovative computer curriculum piloted by the Actualize Coding Bootcamp at Walt Disney Magnet School and featuring a great range of subjects, from computer games to Rome.
Tuesday, January 17, 2017
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (Central Standard Time)
The Walt Disney students will be unveiling their websites which feature a great range of subjects, from computer games to Rome.
This pilot program was recently highlighted by the White House as part of their Computer Science for All program announcement of innovative partnerships teaching students the highly marketable skills of computer science.
Actualize plans to bring this curriculum to elementary schools across the nation. It is designed to be taught by the teachers of core subjects such as history and science, and allows computer science to be brought to the classroom without taking away time from another subject. Once students learn these skills, they can create websites that serve as interactive reports and displays that can either replace or supplement standard schoolwork projects.
