Pueblo D60 holds first computer science convention

Like an Olympian crossing the finish line, Irving Elementary School fourth grader Mason Durbin raised his arms in the air after successfully guiding a robot dash through a short skit about computer science in the construction industry.

The robot skit competition was one of many activities at Pueblo School District 60’s inaugural computer science convention, held at the East High School Media Center Thursday evening. The convention was open to 3rd- through 12th-grade students from throughout the district.

“We are trying to generate excitement about coding, programming and computational thinking skills to inspire our students,” said Paula Herraez, 21st-century skills coach for Pueblo D60.

Stations set up in the media center gave students opportunities to explore drone technology, holograms, binary coding, software engineering, robotics and even a coding-focused digital dance party.
