UPDATE: Brown County Schools to Host Eleven Fifty Academy
Brown County Schools will host the Eleven Fifty Academy. The training is scheduled for the week of September 25 and the weekend.
The weekend event is scheduled at the Career Resource Center on September 30 from 9-4 and October 1 from 9-1230.
Each student in the district will be exposed to coding during Cool Coding Week. The teachers attended a Train the Trainer session last week to prepare. The high school students will also be exposed to career path information and take part in an assessment tool to look at careers.
The Eleven Fifty Academy is a non-profit organization, founded with an aim on closing the gap in our nation’s technology skills.
Brown County students will be provided with a comprehensive introduction to computer coding. Through code cram sessions (intensive overviews of coding in short bursts of time), students are provided with an initial spark of interest in coding. By informing the students of the benefits of coding proficiency in today’s tech-driven world, that spark is fanned into a burning curiosity.
Additionally, the Eleven Fifty experience provides students with a coding agility assessment, which gives them a clear indicator of where their abilities are at, and how their skills can develop.
