Our students are now ready for the next challenge: computer science. Our technology-driven country is exponentially moving toward a workforce where technical fluency is no longer a luxury but a necessity. And, like any language, programming is one that is best digested at a young age. Unfortunately many of our scholars currently lack access to the technology necessary to explore and satisfy their innate curiosity. We want our scholars to continue their reputation of shattering expectations. We want to give them access to a foundation of computer science that will ignite a passion for STEM and coding. We want to give them the exposure to the unlimited world of technology, which many of their higher-income peers enjoy. We want to further enrich our school of game-changers, who will grow up to have an immeasurable impact on our world for the better. Using the Piper Block 4-Pack Bundle computer kits and working with a teammate, scholars will build their own computers and, in doing so, learn the foundations of how computers work. From there, they will learn the basics of programming through Minecraft. After they learn the basics of how computers function and programming, the technological world will open up to them, and who knows what they will be able to do?
