Learning How To Code & STEM outreach for secondary students

Teachers will learn how to code using the program Scratch and then be able to transfer this learning to the students. Teachers will learn the basic programming skills to help students create their own video game and other skills aligned to the curriculum. The Learning Partnership has created lessons for teachers to follow that aligns directly to the Ontario Curriculum and follows the critical inquiry learning process. Teachers will be able to access these lessons in September 2017. This is a great skill for students to learn in the month of June and then practice over the summer months.

Please sign up for the session in ERO on May 23 (St. Dominic, 4-5 pm) OR May 30 (Holy Spirit, 4-5 pm) before May 21.

The STEM outreach group at Google Waterloo has a couple ideas to encourage high school students to try computer programming.

Does your high school want to offer a computer programming club?

Would students at your secondary school like to earn volunteer hours by helping to run a CS First club (coding with scratch) at an elementary school?

If you are interested in either of these STEM initiatives, please see the link below;
