Computer Technology

Upper Elementary students (grades 4-6) learn fundamental computer concepts and skills in the realm of media arts and engineering. Lessons integrate STEAM concepts into learning. Students progress from basic keyboarding skills to more advanced design concepts by producing newsletters, presentations, and videos.

On the engineering side, students begin coding by using drag-and-drop coding blocks, and later transition to typing code in JavaScript or Python. Students apply their knowledge to analyze information, collaborate, problem-solve and practice their presentation skills.

Advanced students will become part of the Internet of Things (IoT) movement by programing interactive microcontrollers to control small mechanical devices and robots.
