Two teams from high school participated in the Infomatrix Latinoamerica Competition. Each team had a stand to present their project. On average, each project was evaluated by five judges from the technology community. The judges used a rubric to assess the projects, and they came to meet and exchange opinions with the young exhibitors. Over 300 projects were presented at the event. Teams who achieved gold or platinum status will continue on to participate in global events. One of our ASFG teams will be going to World Wide Final in Romania and the other is going to compete in Colombia. Learn more from the article accompanying this post.
Our Wizeline hosts also gave a short presentation about why computer science is a great career. Some of the reasons include having super powers to solve problems and a great community of people who support each other. Our students felt this during the classes as they worked together to solve problems. It was a great experience which has interested some of our students in computer science as a career.
chosen to join the eight-week course. Students have been using Sublime Text 3 to learn the basics of Java and HTML. By the end of the eight-week course, students will design a project of their own. It's great to see students collaborating and coding on Saturdays!
Students don't stop to watch their robot in action during Mr. Guzman's Robotics class. They put the pencil to the paper to redesign the next iteration. Elective classes like Robotics encourage students to apply core curriculum concepts to real life problems. Building a robot requires math and science skills as well as collaboration, communication and problem solving.
