In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

U.S. Air Force Academy and FIRST (Day 2)

Today was an exhausting day due to the high altitude and long walking distances.  We arrived at the academy for a presentation by retired Col. Gregory Tate on "Character and Leadership Development".  After a short welcome by Col. Gary Packard the Vice Dean of the Academy, we had lunch at the cadet's dining facility.  We toured the Academy's Applied Mechanics Lab, the Aeronautics Engineering Lab and had a "Question and Answer" session with several U.S. Air Force Cadets.  We ended our academy visit with a demonstration of a NAO robot.  The last 2 things on today's agenda was a visit to the "Gardens of the Gods" and dinner at a 100 year old school turned into a Brewery and Pub.
