Accelerate Learning (opens in new tab) announces the national release of its first coding program, STEMscopes™ Coding (opens in new tab). Powered by Bitsbox, STEMscopes Coding guides students and teachers through the process of creating and sharing digital apps. The new program for grades 3-8 is now available to educators nationwide.
“The best way to learn coding is by diving in and writing real code. With STEMscopes Coding, students get to make and share real apps — and no prior coding experience is required,” said Vernon Johnson, president and CEO of Accelerate Learning. “It also provides embedded support to help educators teach coding with confidence. In addition, every project is mapped to a set of cross-curricular academic standards to make it easier to find time for coding in the curriculum.”
STEMscopes Coding features three types of projects: App, How Do I, and Challenge. App projects provide an example of the code while students follow along. How Do I projects walk students through a task, and Challenge projects allow them to use their newly knowledge to write their own code. All projects are open-ended and include standards-aligned lessons for computer science, science, English language arts, or math.
STEMscopes Coding is priced at $3.95 per student per year, with a maximum price of $2,495 per campus. It is the newest addition to Accelerate Learning’s suite of STEMscopes (opens in new tab) solutions. For more information, visit https://stemscopes.com/coding (opens in new tab).
