Students Learning Computer Science at Vista Ridge Academy

Under the direction of Marit Guild, Grades 3-8 Technology classes are using a popular website called Code.org which is a non-profit aimed at providing computer science education. It contains video tutorials by some of the world’s top programmers and developers and gives the students fun interactive ways to learn and practice writing code.

They have worked through a tutorial that is an introduction to JavaScript sponsored by Khan Academy and have begun practicing writing code through additional tutorials provided on the website. They use the context of popular computer games to give the students practice at writing code.
