Code VA, with partnership from Facebook, held a Competition entitled Computer Science in your Neighborhood. Students were to make a submission about Planning for your Virtual Future – What would you create using computer science?
With encouragement from the Technology Education teacher Mrs. Allison (Moss), Virginia Middle School Tech Ed students had the option to make a submission into the contest. Kendra submitted an essay into the competition. In this essay, Kendra discussed how she would use computer science to detect pollutants in the environment, counteract those pollutants, and submit data to scientist to pinpoint the source of the pollutants, thus helping Earth.
Kendra’s submission won the competition in her district (Region 7), winning a laptop computer. Her classroom teacher Mrs. Allison may also be eligible to receive a classroom set of robots.
Code VA is a non profit organization that, through advocacy, teacher training, and direct student programs, partners with schools, parents, and communities to bring equitable computer science education to all of Virginia's students.
