Why Computer Science? The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in computer and information technology occupations will grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Our students need these skills to be competitive in the future job market. Additionally, over 90% of parents indicate that they want more Computer Science Education opportunities for their children, yet only 6% of Superintendents perceive this demand. Lancaster School District has set Mariposa Computer Science Magnet School apart from other schools.
What do students do at MCSMS? Teaching methods integrate both Programming and Game Design, giving students a well–rounded understanding of how to utilize technology to create. This is a paradigm shift for kids, transitioning them from being just players to being creators.
- Cycle 1 introduces students to block coding through the Scratch programming language developed by MIT.
- Cycle 2 combines block coding skills with LEGOs and LEGO Robotics.
Where can I learn more? Contact us to learn how your child can get started on learning skills they can use in a promising career path.
Not interested in a computer coding job? No problem! Our program teaches skills needed in any job: problem solving, creative thinking, perseverance, patience, organization and collaboration through coding in the classroom.
