Edgewater Collective is bringing together leaders from all sectors of the community to build a cradle to career pathway for student success in the greater Edgewater area. All of the children in the schools that funnel into Jefferson High School utilize iPads at school and home through a generous 1:1 program through Jeffco Schools. A piece of this cradle to career pathway is utilizing the iPads and technology to teach children how to code.
Edgewater Collective is working with Emagineif and Open World Learning to help kids learn to code from elementary through high school and beyond.
Open World Learning has had great success in their after school coding program at Edgewater Elementary this past year and they would love to bring it to Lumberg Elementary in the fall. The Open World Learning program positively impacts students’ attendance and test scores.
It costs $40,000 a year for the after school program at a school. Edgewater Collective is hoping to talk to local tech companies/employees about helping to fund this program.
If you work for a local tech company that might be interested in partnering with this venture, email Joel Newton (firstname.lastname@example.org).You can read more about Open World Learning and their after school elementary program here.
You can also support Open World Learning and their summer coding camp in Edgewater by attending their benefit concert this Friday night at Edgewater Pizza. More info here
