CodeHS' Impact on Pennsylvania
Mifflin County High School - Lewistown, Pennsylvania
With years of professional computer science experience and a flexible teaching style, Kelley Dixon has created a powerful computer science program in Mifflin County.Full Story
CodeHS is very responsive to any questions or problems that we are having.
I do want to share with you how refreshing it is to see students celebrate their success. I had students cheering when they got their code to work. As students finished the first part of the karel exercises, I printed up a little certificate for them. When I presented the certificates in class, they were clapping and cheering for each other. I thought it was really cool. We hung them on the wall and they asked if they can come back and get them at the end of the year to take home.
