High Desert Code.org Workshop at Gus Franklin

Code.org at Gus Franklin

Gus Franklin STEM Academy hosted the High Desert Code.org workshop.  Teachers from the Hesperia, Snowline and Adelanto districts engaged in lesson planning, learning how to code and the benefits of teaching children how to code.

The trainer, Dominic, is a teacher and technology coach in the LAUSD and on the weekend he offers these free Code.org sessions around Southern California.  Mrs. Sandberg graciously organized the event.  

The curriculum is free and anyone can learn!  

Gus Franklin was proud to host the event.
