My students need Pattern Play & a variety of other materials to engage their brains in tasks that help them test their theories. Through hands-on play & exploration children start to discover how the world works.
Our students are curious, hard-working, critical-thinking, problem-solvers, who have a strong desire to express themselves creatively. We are an elementary Title 1, Magnet school, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, participating in our 2nd year of the NYC Computer Science for All Software Enginneering Program Jr. pilot. We service a diverse student population from a variety of cultural, ethnic and economic backgrounds. Our school is committed to exposing all students to computer science learning in ways that are purposeful and fun.
Research shows that there is an underrepresentation of girls & people of color in the field of computer science.
Through this project our all-girls Tech Squad will be using computer science to express themselves through dance, inspiring the next generation of female computer scientists.
Students have been using the Code-a-pillar and Cubetto robots. These add-ons included in this project will help them to have more options to expand their programming possibilities.
This project also includes games and activities that help build students' spatial awareness and mathematical/computational skills.
Having a variety of materials will offer students a multitude of ways to engage with these concepts and skills.
Many studies have found that children, especially at this developmental stage, learn best through play. Help support their journey of discovery through play by funding materials that will be both fun and educational. Additionally, these games/activities can all be played in pairs/groups which will foster students social/emotional growth through collaborative learning experiences.
