CODING AT PALM ELEMENTARY
JUNIOR BOTBALL CHALLENGE
INNOVATIVE PROGRAM TEACHES ELEMENTARY STUDENTS HOW TO CODE
Due to advances in technology, it has become critical for students to learn the world of coding. Everyday, we use code to power computers, cars, phones, watches and even microwaves.
Thanks to a Dell Grant, our young learners are given the opportunity to learn the fascinating world of coding using robotics. The objective is to provide hands-on activities that focus on improving computational thinking skills and promote mastery of concepts. In class, we are using "C" code. This software language is used for creating executable programs. It can create anything from simple console programs that print some text to the screen to entire operating systems (https://www.juniorbotballchallenge.org/).
WHAT IS A CHALLENGE EVENT?
A one-day public event where students showcase their robot designs and solutions on anywhere from 1-24 different challenges. TBD: This event date is coming soon.
