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
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.
The students featured below are from the 5th Grade class at Lavalette Elementary. They include: Jaden Adkins, Marshall Adkins, Parker Adkins, Zoe Adkins, Anastasia Bailey, Jasmine Burbutis, Ella Cassidy, Brayden Clagg, Blake Copley, Carleigh Cyrus, Rickey Dillard, Jeffrey Dillon, Avery Ellis, Zachary Flemings, Sara Foster, Kayla Hall, Lillian Hammonds, Matthew Hernandez, Kaylee Meade, Addison Mooney, Jaden Plew, Kaylee Meade, Jessie Scarberry, Kennedy Slusher, Kaylynn Spangler, and Jacob Thompson.
