Creators of America’s First Computer Science Immersion Schools to Bring Renowned Program to Local Students

 

Delavan, IL -- Delavan CUSD #703 is pleased to announce its partnership with Code To The Future, the nation’s leader in Computer Science Immersion Schools. District officials will launch the program at Delavan Elementary in grades K-6th. Students at this campus will have the exciting opportunity to learn the fundamentals of computer coding as an integrated part of their daily curriculum. Through this 21st century digital literacy, students will develop critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills.

 

Through the partnership with Code To The Future, teachers will be able to engage students in new and creative ways with block-based coding, text-based coding, and robotics. Students will learn to apply logic, problem solving, team building, and presentation skills as they collaborate and share their thinking process with peers. Superintendent Dr. Andrew Brooks said, “This partnership is a tremendous opportunity for our district and will provide our students with enhanced computer science skills to be competitive in college programs and future careers. Being the only downstate school district selected for this partnership, we look forward to representing our region well and promoting the achievements of our students. Be on the lookout for the EPIC creations that our students will be making.”

 

“The partnership will provide access to computer science education for ALL students at Delavan Elementary,” said Andrew Svehaug, CEO of Code To The Future. “Together we will endeavor to equip students with skills that will benefit their local community and prepare them for the high-demand STEM jobs of the future.”

 

Computer Science Immersion at Delavan Elementary will launch in August, 2019. The school will continue to offer the same, outstanding instruction in Reading, Writing, Math, Science, Social Studies, Vocational/Technical, Music, Art, and PE, all of which are foundational content to this campus. Coding is now an exciting, integrated enhancement to the excellent education students already receive.
