We are excited to announce our newest elementary specials offering: Computer Science! Edmond Public Schools implemented elementary Computer Science district-wide this year, and all students Kindergarten through 5th grade will be participating in it. Most STEM jobs will be in computer programming, or at they very least utilize it. We’re thrilled to be offering STEM in this way, and are the first public school district inthe area to do so.

What is Computer Science?

Computer Science is coding and programming, but also includes understanding how the Internet works, cyber-security, impacts of computing, and much more. If you’d like to see the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Computer Science (and what the class is covering specifically), click here!

Who is the Ida Freeman Computer Science teacher?

Our site’s Computer Science teacher is Nathan Cates, and they have really enjoyed these first few weeks teaching your student(s). So far, we’re covering Digital Citizenship and how to behave online. We’re going to keep you updated on what we cover in Computer Science this year, but be sure to ask your student what they’ve learned too!
