Students time in the STEM Lab these past two weeks have been spent exploring the amazing world of computer science and coding! Both lower and upper graders were exposed to hands-on coding with robotics, some for their first time ever. Every student at Laguna Road was given the opportunity build, refine and test their code in a way that let them see meaningful gains from their hard work. Computer Science and Engineering are two of the quickest growing industries worldwide, and it is never too early to teach their fundamentals. With every grade level receiving instruction I hope this can become a grassroots effort of sorts which leads to the school adopting even tougher resources and tools in the future as the students become more versed in coding and computer science!
“The United States ranks 20th among all nations in the proportion of 24-year-olds who earn degrees in natural science or engineering, paving the way for a large amount of growth in grassroots programs in the next decade.”
