Today we met with Shelby County Schools in Alabama and visited 3 different schools for Presentations!
Today, we had a big day of district and school visits in Alabama! We met with Shelby County Schools, who has been using CodeHS to help introduce a computer science program at their district. They’re doing mostly online courses, and the students are getting help from teachers working remotely. CodeHS has helped them introduce computer science where it wouldn’t have been possible before.
We met with the school district, where they are figuring out how they want to expand computer science opportunities for students. We presented at Chelsea High School to students about the importance of computer science. We also visited Helena High School to present to more students. Near the end of the day we headed to Montevallo High School, where we interviewed Wezley, who is a student in the district who has been doing lots of coding on his own and also took the CodeHS class.
It’s an educational tool to help students with disabilities. It uses hand recognition as well as eye recognition to help them solve different math games.
He demoed one of the amazing apps that he is working on — it’s an educational tool to help students with disabilities. It uses hand recognition as well as eye recognition to help them solve different math games. It was amazing! We got to talk to Wezley about how he learned programming, why he thinks other students should learn, and check out his awesome project.
You don’t want to miss this. It’s exciting to see how students are able to be creative with programming. Check out the interview here.
