This week The Tutorial Center-Bennington is participating in the international “Hour of Code 2017”, a weeklong worldwide celebration of computer science. Our activities are one of 138,441 registered global events occurring under this theme!
Our adult ed students are completing one-hour hands-on lessons in computer coding—designed to demystify coding and build enthusiasm for learning computer programming skills. Students show here are coding the steps to write a computer program. (Also known to many of you as rockin’ Minecraft!)
Students receive a Certificate of Completion for demonstrating an understanding of the basic concepts of Computer Science. Learning. It’s Everywhere.
Tutorial Center students are graduating throughout the region! Here are a few that we’ve captured so far. Congratulations to all of you for all the hard work and persistence – it was our honor to help you in this important step along your path.
In her first video project Abby, a student at our Bennington learning center, brings you along on a class excursion to The Tutorial Center at Smokey House where they got a hands-on, start-to-finish lesson in making festive evergreen wreaths.
After the event Abby used photographs, video, and voice-over narration to put together this great movie about the experience.
On Sunday February 5th, 2017 Tutorial Center instructor and Vermont House Representative, Robin Chestnut Tangerman, will lead a relaxed discussion on how Vermonters can best work with, and within, their local and state governments.
The community, staff and students are showing a renewed interest in the way governments operate—from town boards to the Oval Office. The Tutorial Center is happy to provide this opportunity for civic engagement. Our current High School Completion students are encouraged to attend as part of your on-going lessons in civics.
The session will touch on the mechanics of how laws and regulations are adopted within our state, along with how to make your voice heard with elected officials.
This is a non-partisan event. All perspectives are welcome and will be respected. Bring your enthusiasm and questions!
Let us know you’re coming on our Facebook Event Page!
