Students Complete CS First Program

The 4th and 5th grade classes at Lavalette Elementary recently completed an 8-week program on computer science. This program, sponsored by Google, allows youth to be creators, rather than just consumers, of technology. Computer science's emphasis on problem solving is applicable across disciplines, driving growth and innovation across all sectors of the workforce. Students learned key principles of coding and computer programming through online videos and then applying what they learned in Scratch, a free online program that allows youth to create interactive stories.
