Alvey is hosting the 5th annual Western PWCS Technology & STEAM Showcase on Wednesday, April 5th at 5:00-6:00. Tech Club will NOT meet that day. Instead Tech Club members are invited to present their coding projects at the Showcase. Please sign up for one half-hour time slot at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/9040C49ACAC29A02-technology for your child to present. This will give you and your child the other thirty minutes to view all of the other activities during the Showcase. Thank you for your support.
2016-17 marks the 7th year of the Alvey Tech Club. Each year, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students work on year long projects each Wednesday after school. Tech club members learn a variety of computer skills and become technology leaders in the school. Members have created animations about animals, continents, and ancient civilizations. They have written and published digital mysteries, fables, and fairy tales. They have learned computer coding and coded their own video games. They have presented their work to other students, teachers, parents, and community members at Mary Washington University, Battlefield High School, Haymarket Elementary, and Mountain View Elementary.
Students apply online to be members of the club. Applications open during Back to School Night. Due to space and computer limitations, only 30 members are chosen randomly from the applications received. This year's Tech Club theme and focus will be coding.
