Joshua Nicholes will be teaching an extra-curricular after school computer class to those interested among Learning Bridge’s fifth, sixth and seventh grade students. He plans to expand this class to the charter school’s eighth graders next year. The overwhelming consensus is that the students are mostly interested in learning to repair computers however there is a fair amount of interest in computer programming and web development as well. For the first project the group decided that they would like to build a computer from scratch. Parts to build a machine have been ordered. The students will be working on that for a few weeks and move into troubleshooting. They have also agreed to help be stewards of the schools technology and help keep the chromebook laptop carts organized and in good order and eventually the students will be able to help with the website.
Nicholes efforts have been instrumental in helping Learning Bridge meet its science, technology, engineering and math goals Learning Bridge Charter School Chairman of the Board Julie Kirch said..
