“Taggin’ On” & learning to code: Highlights for September 19 - 25, 2017


The transition to middle school is a big one.  Just getting to school can be a new and daunting task for students -- catching buses, trains, and even biking to school on their own. To help students understand traffic rules, pedestrian laws and more, the Bay Area Children's Theater is bringing transportation to life with a performance of skits and songs that include ‘Taggin’ On,’ which teaches students how to use the Clipper Card, and ‘Respect the Bus,’ which covers public transportation etiquette and safety. 

When:   Wednesday, Sept. 20 / 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Where:  Marina MS / 3500 Fillmore St.


Just two years ago, the SF Board of Education adopted a PreK-12 Computer Science (CS) resolution, committing SFUSD to teaching CS to more than a small number of self-selecting high school students. Now CS classes and related content can be found throughout the district.  In fact, 40 percent of SFUSD middle schoolers are already taking the courses, and now a few elementary school teachers are conducting Computer Science lessons. Watch third graders explore the connection between hardware and software with Makey Makeys. Students can creatively design and test electrical inputs to interact with apps -- lessons that are a part of learning the new language of the 21st century.

When:     Thursday, Sept. 21 / 11:30-12:15 p.m.   

Where:  Starr King Elementary / 1215 Carolina St.
