Tierra offers Computer Science as an elective for 5th Grade Students

Mrs. Hernandez attended a summer week long training at the University of Texas at Dallas. The training was sponsored by Code.org. They design materials for a classroom setting and provide teachers robust support that enable them to understand and perform their critical role in delivering the content for student learning.

Computing is so fundamental to understanding and participating in society that it is valuable for every student to learn as part of a modern education.  Computer science can be seen as a liberal art, a subject that provides students with a critical lens for interpreting the world around them. Computer science prepares all students to be active and informed contributors to our increasingly technological society whether they pursue careers in technology or not. Computer science can be life-changing, not just skill training.
