In 2013, I started volunteering as the computer lab monitor for Mortensen Elementary after school. The school likes having me there because of my computer science background, so I’m going to make use of that background to teach kids how to code.
Purpose: Encourage Mortensen Elementary students to explore programming using a Code.org class.
Goal: I want to have at least 20 kids signed up for the Code.org class throughout the upcoming school year that log into the class at least once every week.
Plan: I’ve already set up a Code.org class for Mortensen students. There are 20 sections and I will reward students for completing sections with prizes. After a student successfully completes 5 sections, they can pick out a prize. Prizes will be convention swag from local technology companies. I will be at the school once every week for support and encouragement.
