#WeeCode


This week WTSD is participating in the Hour of Code to expose students to the basics of computer science. The Hour of Code is just one example of the many PK-12 computer science activities and offerings in WTSD.  This summer WTSD hosted Code.org for a professional development workshop for our teachers.  At TRS and WHS we now have Minecraft computer labs where students sharpen their mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills while playing Minecraft Education Edition.  As of this September, WHS offers AP Computer Science A, as well as, AP Principles of Computer Science. Coding is one of the key skills developed when students participate in robotics.  So this year we launched our Robotics elective course and WHS Robotics Team.  Our students are having tons of fun while honing #FutureReady skills.
