Coding Club

Mayra and Cecilia Buendía
Meeting Time/Location
We meet during the Fall and Spring. During the Fall it was an 8 week long club that would meet from 3:15-4:15 PM on Tuesdays. In the Spring, we moved to a morning format, still 8 weeks long meeting from 7:15-7:45 AM on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Grade Levels: 3rd-5th Grade

Description: In our club, we use coding programs that are available in English and Spanish for students to learn coding at their individual pace. We use block-based programming tools like Swift by Apple, CS First by Google, as well as robots like Sphero. As expressed by CS First, “by using computer science, students become creators and not just consumers of technology. They use computer science to tell stories, design, and build video games. And create all kinds of art! They develop creative problem-solving skills and a ‘debugging’ mindset, which approaches errors not as roadblocks, but as problems to be solved. These skills help all students, whether or not they choose computer science as a career path. They can be applied across all areas of the classroom and in the real world!”

Descripción: En nuestro club, utilizamos programas de codificación que están disponibles en inglés y español para que los estudiantes puedan aprender la codificación a su ritmo individual. Utilizamos herramientas de programación basadas en bloques como Swift de Apple, CS First de Google y robots como Sphero. Como lo expresó CS First, “al usar la informática, los estudiantes se convierten en creadores y no solo en consumidores de tecnología. Utilizan la informática para contar historias, diseñar y construir videojuegos. ¡Y crean todo tipo de arte! Desarrollan habilidades creativas de resolución de problemas y una mentalidad de "depuración", que aborda los errores no como obstáculos, sino como problemas para resolver. Estas habilidades ayudan a todos los estudiantes, ya sea que elijan o no la informática como una carrera profesional. ¡Se pueden aplicar en todas las áreas del aula y en el mundo real! ”
