EARLY LEARNING CODING
This program exposes students in lower grades (K-2) to coding on a consistent basis. Having more students with this early exposure to coding will assist our school in having a stronger and more competitive Robotics program for Hutchinson Elementary School. Additionally, as a STEM school candidate, coding will expose our students to a unique and explicit curriculum that will set us apart from non-STEM schools. I am excited to start students early. There is a large body of research that shows positive results for students who are introduced to coding in their primary years.
