It’s after school, the day before summer break begins, but students at Brook Knoll Elementary are clacking away on their keyboards to finish up coding projects.
Third grader Alisa Davidson is working on a project that’s part game, part thank-you card for a teacher who’s are leaving after this year. She’s been in the class since first grade, and focuses on creating projects that allow her to paint myriad colors, critters and shapes across the screen.
“I really like just playing with my sketches, most of all, and just coding new ones,” she said. “It’s just really cool how you can create anything you want.”
