We are lucky to receive handwritten notes from the students we work with, telling us about how that experience shaped them.
Between the lines, we see those moments of awe, inspiration, and gratitude to a new exposure and a new experience. Taking students into a journey that goes beyond just using technology but rather creating with it and loving it.
This year, we took part in the global movement “Hour of Code” at Head Middle Magnet School. We visited students in their classroom to engage them with hands-on activities, giving them the opportunity to learn how to code while encouraging them to start seeing coding as a new form of expression and a new context of learning.
The session was fun and inspiring, so their sponsoring teacher followed up with the below thank you note:
“I wanted to follow up with you today to express my sincere thanks for the great opportunity to engage my 8th grade students with technology and coding. They were still talking about your session today.
When you entered our room on Friday, students had mixed thoughts. Only a few of them had exposure to coding in the past but found what they learned awesome!
Sharing your experience with them and your career path was a great advantage. A few of the students wrote messages to you that I would like to share. The letters are handwritten from each student.
Again, thanks for the energetic session that has sparked an interest like none other.”
We are honored to serve the children in our community and, hopefully, sparking in them a love of tech.
