Villa 6th Graders Go to (Tech) Boot Camp

Over three days last week, Villa 6th graders participated in intensive hands-on computer science workshops with Computing Kids, a local organization that delivers high-quality computer science instruction. Students explored various computing skills including Google Apps for Education, Digital Citizenship, and hardware/OS maintenance. They also took a deep-dive into coding using Scratch, an MIT-developmed platform for young people, and the BBC Micro:bit, a hand-held, programmable micro-computer that can be used to make all sorts of creations.
