This week the 5th graders spent time thinking about what computers are and how they fit into their lives. To kick off the conversation the students watched a short video clip produced by the non-profit foundation,Code.org.
They believe that EVERY student in EVERY school should learn computer science.
After watching the film the 5th graders shared their impressions of the film and of computer science.
Wow, I don't know about you, but I think I want to learn to "code"!
