This week is Computer Science Education week and we will be working with Mr. Prevost to learn more about coding using code.org. I have attached a few articles about Computer Science to the Google Classroom be sure to read them to help with answering the following questions.
What is Computer Science? Why study Computer Science? By the year 2020 how many million jobs will be in computing? Currently how many high schools in the nation are teaching computer science courses? What are the seven big ideas at the core of computer science? What are some careers in computer science industry? Do any of these interest you?
Pick one of these careers to do more research on – tell us about that career – including job description, pay, hours, work environment, education required, and anything interesting about this career.
Find an article and give a 2-3 paragraph recap on the article and how it has changed your thoughts about why computer science is important to everyone. Add a link to the article for others to read.
Then give me your opinion on computer science and what you have experienced this week.
Respond to two different students with 3 or more things you learned about either their career they explained or from the article that they selected.
Mrs. Miller will use the blog to help students ask questions, remember what we did in class and just a place to discuss class topics.
