Career Week at Montara

Coding Club Geniuses

Members of the 5th Grade STEM Magnet School have the opportunity to participate in an after school coding club on Wednesday afternoons. The students are using the Scratch website, a coding program that was created by MIT. They are learning to create various animated programs with voice, music, and many other special effects.  It is very exciting to watch their imaginations soar!

Programming Dash

The 2nd graders are taking the coding skills they have learned this year on code.org to program Dash the robot to move around the computer lab and complete the commands they give it.  They are learning to "debug" and "test" their code, just like computer scientists do.  Who knows what these kids will be able to do with the technology of the future!


The students in the STEM Magnet program have just begun learning how to code Ozobot to follow lines.  Many more exciting coding opportunities to come!

Hour of Code

In December, during Computer Science Education week, all Students at Montara participated in the Hour of Code, a global event sponsored by code.org to encourage computer science education for all students, especially those underrepresented in technology careers.
