Computer Science Immersion Program: Code to the Future
It is with great pleasure to share with our Falcon Academy families and community the exciting partnership our school began in the 2018-2019 school year! The BOUSD School Board approved the implementation of a computer science immersion program called Code To The Future for Falcon Academy students in Kindergarten to 6th Grade. Our students have the opportunity to learn fundamentals of Computer Coding as part of their daily curriculum. Through this 21st century literacy, students will develop critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills. The program is designed to help students attain the skills needed for success later in their education and to have the opportunity to meet the demand for skilled employees in this field.
Code To The Future will engage and teach students through innovative ways such as block-based programming languages, robotics, and text-based programming environments. To have students learn coding at an early age will be able to set them apart from others in any setting. We will use coding to complement core content areas and will continue to offer the same, outstanding instruction in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Music, and PE. Coding is an exciting, integrated enhancement to the excellent learning already taking place at Falcon Academy!
