TRMS Reacts to Hour of Code

TRMS Reacts to Hour of Code

Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students tried computer science!

This is what Trail Ridge students had to say about Hour of Code.

Full STEAM Ahead

How can STEM include art? Utilizing some of the most current technology the students at Trail Ridge Middle School are creating three-dimensional drawings and objects. The art department has focused their STEM integration on an advanced engineering program called Solidworks. The software allows the students to think and create in three dimensions. The students have been creating innovative designs that can alter the usage of a water bottle to help reduce waste and products that can help the students at TRMS.

3rd Annual Grizzly VEX Robotics Challenge

On December 6th, 2014, Trail Ridge Middle school held their 3rd Annual Grizzly VEX Robotics Challenge. Thirty middle and high school teams from around Colorado gathered to compete in the Vex Robotics Competition - Skyrise. This all day event included qualifying and elimination rounds, a skills/programming field, and a judging room for teams to be interviewed with their engineering notebooks and robots.

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
