Computer Science Makers and Innovators at Memorial Middle School
This year La Joya ISD received a grant that introduces students to computer science. In this class students will be introduced to physical computing, or how the computer interacts with the environment. Students will program microcontrollers to interact with different sensors and they will create different individual and group projects. In the process, students will learn how to solve problems by writing algorithms, drawing flowcharts, and creating and fixing code. The teacher, Mr. Hinojosa, is currently receiving training to introduce said topics to the students. Next year, the grant will expand, so that in the first semester the students take the Computer Science Makers and Innovators class and the same students continue the second semester to take the App Creators class, where the students will learn how to create apps for tablets and phones.
