CSD Students Look To Future With ‘Hour of Code’ Events

Canyons District is building an army of “code talkers.”

Canyons schools are participating this week, which is Computer Science Education Week, in the “Hour of Code,” a nationwide effort to increase the awareness of and interest in computer science.

The goal of Hour of Code activites, says Janet Goble, CSD’s Director of Career and Technical Education, “is to introduce students to the world of programming in hopes of encouraging” more participation in computer science courses.

Goble says students will be programming via tablet apps and introduced to other types of computer programming. They also will learn options available to them in the fields of computer science and programming.

One of the highlights of the week is Hillcrest High’s invited participation in an event at Adobe System Inc.’s Lehi campus. The school’s robotics team, which last year won the opportunity to compete in the world FIRST Robotics contest in St. Louis, was asked to have a booth and give a formal presentation on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013. Learning events also will be held this week at Alta, Brighton, Hillcrest and Jordan high schools.

Computer science is one of the highest paying career areas with more than a million jobs currently not being filled in the United States. In addition, fewer than 10 percent of schools offer computer science as an option for students.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
