    For two weeks, the students at Pfeiffer-Burleigh will engage in Coding projects. Students all over the world will be working on coding for the Hour of Code educational celebration. We will go deeper with coding and programming and the students, depending on their grade, will be creating projects that help them better understand their ability to contribute to the world of computer science and the ever-evolving field of technology. 

    All students will partake in the Code.org Hour of Code games and tutorials for an hour during week 1. Then,


    Grades K-2: Students will work progamming concepts of following directions, If/ Then statements and using symbols to mean something else!


    Grades 3-6: Students will use Scratch coding pogram to create animations and/ or games of their own. 


    Grades 7/8: Students will work through building and programming challenges for Lego EV3 Mindstorm Robots.





    Residency Opportunity for 4th and 5th Graders with the Erie Children's Museum! 


    An exciting opportunity has presented itself for Pfeiffer-Burleigh 4th and 5th graders to create an exhibit for the Erie Children's Museum. Beginning in mid-February, educators from Erie Children's Museum and artist-in-residence, Jude Shingle, will team up with us in the STEAM classroom to spend approximately 15 days working the 4th graders in Mrs. Madura's room and 5th graders in Mrs. Baldi's room to create an interactive exhibit around the theme of cause and effect inspired games. Once completed, we encourage P-B families to visit the exhibit at the Children's Museum. More information will follow!
