A Chat With Jacqueline Olliges from Amazon Future Engineer

We sat down with Jacqueline Olliges from Amazon Future Engineer to discuss the Amazon Future Engineer + BootUp PD Computer Science Elementary Sponsorship, the importance of computer science education, advice for school districts who want to bring computer science to their schools, and much more!

Teach elementary students to code through interest-driven projects

Coding environments and curricula with puzzles and challenges often utilize engaging platforms which guide young coders to learn fundamental coding concepts and practices. These environments and curricula often progress from simple through complex algorithmic sequences with clearly defined solutions. This approach not only provides useful resources for young coders new to coding, but for adults new to teaching, facilitating, or evaluating coding classes

Introducing Coding into Kingsport City Schools

Kingsport City Schools began their coding implementation program in 2016 when they were the recipient of a BootUp coding implementation grant funded by Emerald Data Solutions. Kingsport City Schools has an overall ratio of 54% free or reduced lunch recipients, with some schools experiencing extreme poverty with up to 90% free or reduced lunch recipients, so equitable implementation and access was a focus.
