Rock Stars Emerge at Dove Springs Coding Academy

August 24th, 2017 by admin

The second annual Dove Springs Coding Academy (DSCA) summer program

was amazing!  It was seven straight weeks of coding, teamwork,

communication projects, and outdoor logic activities.

 

New for DSCA this summer was CHESS WEEK where 90% of

elementary and MS/HS campers learned how to play chess for the first time.


Students loved learning chess SO much that they eagerly worked

to improve their chess skills all summer.

 

Another highlight for the summer was hosting a delegation of tech journalists


and activists from Africa!  These journalists engaged DSCA students around the topic

of using technology for social change.

 


This summer our hard-working DSCA coders (some only 5 years old!)

learned the fundamentals of coding logic and programming through

website design, interactive multimedia, video game design, career mentoring,

and field trips. One field trip to Google Fiber headquarters was an awesome intro

to virtual reality programming.

Twitter and Facebook timelines.
