The 16th annual AT&T/MACUL/MVU Student Technology Showcase took place December 7, 2016 in the rotunda of the Michigan State Capitol building. The event featured nearly 40 student teams from around the state that showcased students demonstrating the use of classroom technology. This is a series to highlight the participating teams. Articles were submitted by each team.

The Grandview Elementary School student team project featured at the 16th Annual STS at the Capitol focused on Scratch programming for elementary students.

Students from the after school coding club ‘Tech Trojans’ presented some of their projects created using Scratch. They use the coding program to imagine, work collaboratively and problem solve.

“Computer science teaches problem solving, collaboration, perseverance and creativity, all necessary skills for the 21st century learner,” said school librarian Lisa Piontek.
