(York) The 3rd Annual "Coding Express" will take place on Wednesday, November 29th, from 6-7pm at Coastal Ridge Elementary. This Polar Express-themed event is an evening of hot cocoa, cookies, and computer coding for the entire family! Don't forget to wear your PJ's! (I'm the Technology Teacher/Coach for 2 schools, and I'm due to have a baby on Dec. 6th, so we're hosting this a week early in hopes that I can still be around!)
(Scarborough) We will kickoff Computer Science in Education week with an assembly to build excitement amongst students then all students will participate in multiple coding experience. This will begin our computer science curriculum: Code.org for the year.
(South Portland) Our school is hosting The Day of Code, a Saturday event where fifty students from across the district will rotate through coding workshops led by technology integrators, classroom teachers and community technology leaders. Students will engage in codings, 3D printing, tinkering and will even be given 20% time to follow their interests in computer science. This annual event is open to students in grades 3-5 from across the city of South Portland. Organizer Corinne Altham combines her experience as a camp director with her love of teaching kids with technology. Students will leave The Day of Code with a list of resources so they can continue their coding journey at home.
HardScrabble Solutions (Presque Isle) I will be hosting this series as a Christmas Break half-day camp.
