Nine staff members from Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 will be presenting their work, experience and knowledge at the TIES 2017 Education Technology Conference Dec. 9-12 in Minneapolis.
Burnsville High School will be hosting a “Family Hour of Code” night on Dec. 7 from 6 to 8 p.m., as part of the worldwide Computer Science Education Week on Dec. 4-10.
This is the first time that BHS will be hosting a family-oriented Hour of Code event. The goal is to have District 191 families with students who are interested in computer science get together and try coding.
Coding is when you tell a computer exactly what to do by giving it step-by-step directions. It’s also known as computer programming.
Burnsville High School technology teacher Cindy Drahos has been named the top 2017 Aspiring Educator Award winner and one of her students, senior Anna Bunce, received honorable mention in the Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Awards.
Two students, who developed a mobile app for a class at Burnsville High School, have won first place in the 2nd Congressional District as part of the national Congressional App Challenge (CAC).
Mobile computing is not the future. It’s the now, and thanks to teacher Cindy Drahos, students at Burnsville High School aren’t having to wait to dive in to mobile programming.
Teachers and students throughout Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 are taking extra time the week of Dec. 8-12 to focus on creating computer code as part of a global movement that will involve millions of students in more than 180 countries.
