On October 21, 2022, WCSD brought together ALL of our elementary teachers K-5 for Professional Development on how to integrate Computer Science into core subjects; Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies! WCSD is launching elementary computer science in all 28 of our elementary schools this year and now offers computer science education in EVERY school in our school district K-12 for EVERY student.

Learning innovative and creative problem solving and critical thinking skills is important to every educational discipline and to every career pathway in today's world! At the big elementary kick-off event, teachers and schools received equipment purchased from the Utah Computer Science K-12 Initiative Grant and were then trained on that equipment. Follow us to learn of our journey through this exciting implementation! #washk12computercoding #CSforAll #computerscience #computerscienceeducation #k5education #computerscienceforkids #washk12 #elementaryeducation #stemeducation #STEM

Note that our feedback from elementary principals and elementary teachers has been tremendous!
