This fall, Lincoln Public Schools is rolling out a revamped elementary computer curriculum that emphasizes computer science — and coding — principles. Kent Steen, LPS computer science curriculum specialist, said the goal is to expose all students to the basics of coding and computer science — including robotics — along with digital literacy and digital media arts. Exposing all students to computer science at a young age, by showing them it’s something they all can do, will help reduce the gender and racial minority gap in such fields, he said.
