Multiple studies show that STEM curriculum drives better college and career readiness for students. Specifically, coding and computer science presents students with new opportunities to think critically, communicate effectively, and innovate collaboratively. It's also pretty cool to make a robot dance.
Our coding and computer science curriculum includes over 30 missions and activities focused on standards-aligned concepts such as digital citizenship, algorithms and sequencing, design, variables, and conditionals.
Learning just doesn't have to be pencil and paper. It's real world and making something happen. The excitement in the kids is really a genuine difference in basic computer science learning.

The curriculum guide was a first. It was very comprehensive. The missions themselves are fun. The students are able to learn very systematically. We are just sitting there building a standard "thing". They really now see the possibilities of what they can do.
