Villa Park, CA – December 13, 2018 – In celebration of Computer Science Week, the Serrano Eagles were treated to a morning of innovation and technology. Lessons and devices were shared by the district’s Educational Technology department, who demonstrated how these tools can augment learning in the classroom.
Students learned about engineering, design thinking, and coding as a language which helps in computer science and technology. Then they learned to write code to fly drones; control Ozobots, Bee Bots, Dash and Dots; and even motorize Legos. Students also learned how to make their own game using the program Scratch Jr., created Stop Motion videos, and experienced virtual field-trips by way of Google Expeditions VR.
“It was a wonderful day!” exclaimed Serrano Principal Katherine Rizzo. “Students and teachers alike were excited about all of the possibilities of STEAM implementation in our classrooms.”
