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 our latest Learning POD taught by David Thomas of Blue Spruce Construction, Tutorial Center adult ed students in our Bennington location use their measurement and geometry skills to plan a birdhouse, then learn basic carpentry skills while each building their own.
This pre-tech level Learning POD combines applied math with knowledge of carpentry tools, materials, joinery, basic woodworking skills and shop safety. And somewhere soon some lucky birds will have new custom-built homes!
Thanks to Home Depot for their support by providing materials and supplies.
