What our brightest students need and schools don't teach...


"In the next ten years, there will be about 1.4 million jobs in computer science and only 400,000 qualified graduates to fill those jobs." Thus, we need to enrich the education our students receive by differentiating and providing them with more opportunities to learn how to Code. 

So...how do we take the intimidation of coding (computer programming) out of the equation? 

Please see the following video that stresses the importance of computational thinking and learning how to code (program).  It REALLY is a powerful message and includes Bill Gates and a quote from Steve Jobs.



Please consider "liking" the STRETCh facebook page: goo.gl/r5foT
STRETCh - Striving To Reach Every Talented Child is about eliminating the ability of the school system to stall our children's education. Student's can do so much more than they are "allowed" to do in a school setting when we use whole group instruction. With technology, we can personalize learning and allow ALL student to grow and discover their strength areas.
