Welcome to Ridgemont Elementary's chapter of the Fort Bend Computer Coding Club(FBC3)! Also known as the Computer and Robotics Club. This year, 5th Grade Club members are meeting on Tuesday afternoons from 3:45 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. We are very grateful to Schlumberger and The Fort Bend Education Foundation who support FBC3 across the District.
The purpose of the Computer and Robotics Club is to develop students' interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) through computer coding projects and robotics competitions. Our goal is for students to learn important lifelong qualities such as teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, and boost self-confidence.
5th-grade students learn the basics of computer programming with different programs. They use Scratch,
which allows students to create animations or even their own video games. 5th Graders may participate in local and district Robotics competitions. They program a robot to maneuver through an obstacle or complete a challenge. Learning to code is like learning a new language, and understanding this language will open up many possibilities for jobs in the future.
