Mr. Edge

My name is Scott Edge and I am the Computer Applications teacher at CS Porter Middle School. This is my fourteenth year teaching here at CS Porter. The first six years, I taught 6th grade Math, Science, Social Studies, English Language Arts, and H/PE. 7 years ago, I was given the opportunity to teach Computer Applications. I love the challenge and am looking forward to the years ahead.
 
Sixth graders will spend a bulk of the quarter working on improving their keyboarding skills using a the website typing.com. I will spend the last three weeks of the quarter introducing Engineering.  I recently attended Project Lead the Way training at San Diego State University and University of Colorado Colorado Springs and am excited about teaching the fun and challenging PLTW pre-engineering curriculum. Seventh graders participate in the Design and Modeling module, using state of the art design software to create various artifacts throughout the quarter. Eighth graders take on the Automation and Robotics module and design and create machines and robots using the VEX building platform. Two new modules will be offered this year called App Creators and Computer Science for Innovators and Makers. In these modules, 8th graders will learn how to create apps using MIT's App Inventor and dive in to physical computing creating and coding Microbit mini computers.
