    Kidsburgh: STEM Coding Lab providing computer classes in schools around the region

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- When most of us were in school, we took science classes like biology and chemistry, but computer science may be even more important for today's kids. Yet nearly 90% of kindergarten through eighth grade students don't have access to computer science classes. KDKA-TV's Kristine Sorensen visited a local school where the nonprofit STEM Coding Lab is providing computer classes there and in schools around the region.

ABOUT OUR SCHOOL



  • Pittsburgh King PreK-8 is a neighborhood school located in Pittsburgh's North Side community. We believe that at the heart of the transformation of Pittsburgh King is a shared commitment to and relentless pursuit of racial equity. In order to achieve racial equity, we must create a culture of high expectations for all, and work together to ensure exposure to high quality instruction for every student, in every classroom, every day. Through this transformation, we will ensure 100% of our students enter high school promise ready. As a Title I school, Pittsburgh King benefits from additional resources that support our students in the areas of reading and math. The teachers and students at Pittsburgh King also have access to computer labs, mobile labs, digital visual projectors and a distance-learning lab to enhance the learning experience of all students.
     
    The motto for our students is "Learn More, Do More and Become More" and it is through this motto that we strive to create a culture of high expectations where all students are encouraged to strive for excellence both academically and behaviorally. The students will take part in a daily Group Guided Instruction (GGI) under the direction of a Pittsburgh King Pre K-8 staff member. GGI is a structured safe environment, facilitated by students under the supervision of a trained staff member. This is an opportunity for explicit instruction of social skills in a group setting. In additional to GGI, all students attend Community Time each day, a time where information is shared with staff and students, promoting critical thinking skills, and team building exercises.
     
    Pittsburgh King participates in the District's interscholastic sports programs for both girls and boys. The current sports offered are cross-country, basketball, soccer, baseball and softball. Beginning with Books' “Everybody Wins” program has community members that come to read with our third grade students during lunch. Point Park's Champions of Character program offers our students college mentors that meet with them throughout the year. Pittsburgh King also has partnerships with the Salvation Army and Mercy Behavioral Health.
