Rather than spend one of their first weeks of summer in the pool or watching TV, some Garland ISD students chose to immerse themselves in the world of computer science.
In the span of just four days, participants of Garland ISD’s Summer Coding Academy – held June 17-20 – gained understanding of the binary system, robots, programming and virtual reality.
This is the third year of the camp, and numbers have already tripled.
“We try to engage young students with computer science and make them understand how coding works so they have a greater appreciation for technology,” said Jasna Aliefendic, Technology Applications Coordinator. “We want them to be creators and not just consumers of technology.”
