Education of the Future / Educación del Futuro December 6, 2017
All week Lincoln is celebrating CS week. On Monday, kicked off CS Education Week with “Hidden Figures” introduced by LinkedIn WIT Summer Trainees.  Tuesday, 38 students traveled to UC Berkeley to celebrate CS Education Day at EECS.  Wednesday, Lincoln hosted Family Code Night in English and Spanish.  (See Video). SJUSD partnered with Silicon Valley Education Foundation (SVEF) and Family Code Night.  The event was a great success! It was the first time that the Family Code Night Curriculum was translated and delivered in Spanish.  Thursday, the Lion’s Code will be demoing Virtual Reality.  Friday, some students will be heading to the Microsoft Store to hear a HTC Vive Engineer Panel and do some hands on VR/AR/XR.  CS week is celebrated world wide every year in the first week of December.

Lincoln’s 2017 PBL Fair.
Some of Mrs. Reid’s Exploring Computer Science Students showcase their Virtual Reality(VR) Projects to Lincoln student audience.  The VR showcase
was a hit. Lincoln High School is the only high school that offers VR curriculum to over 200 students.  Lincoln High is the only and first SJUSD school that offers VR curriculum during the school day in Northern California, and perhaps the whole state of California. 

2017 Fall PBL Fair
Meilyn and Lukas created a VR Outer Space themed Ping Pong game that “wowed” these Lincoln participants.

U.S Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren’s Staff with AP CS Students on May 19, 2015. 
This follow up Congressional Staff (Michael Branson and Shirley Duong) meeting was a positive and productive experience for our students.  Our students offered some recommendations:  1)  Offer more coding opportunities for K12 Education 2)  Federal Government support awareness of coding to parents, children, and the community.  In 2013 there was a Computer Science Education Act (2013)  which allowed districts to reallocate money for purchasing technology or provide CS education.  This did not give extra money but gave permission to use existing money for CS education.  This proposal did not pass in 2013, however, students are going to look to see if we can revise and resubmit proposal to U. S. Congress.  So very proud of our Lincoln students. They represented us very well at this meeting. 


U.S. Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren visits AP Computer Class and AP Government Monday April 20, 2015.
AP Computer Science did a fantastic job giving presentation to Honorable Lofgren.  She wants to meet with AP Computer Science students again to get ideas how to attract more people into the technology field so that she can take back to U.S. Congress.  AP Government students asked great questions and were super charged from her visit.  This was a great opportunity for our Lincoln students and community.
