Did you know that TSBVI has a Coding Club?
Currently in it's second year, TSBVI Coding Club is made up of mostly high school students. We coordinate with students from the University of Texas Computer Science department to meet with our students on a weekly basis and carry out a 12-week curriculum. These volunteers teach our students the basics of programming so that at the end of the 12-week course, the students are able to use their developed skills to create games and build Lego Mindstorms robots.
The programming language that is being used to teach computer programming to students at TSBVI is Quorum. Originally created to be more accessible for blind and visually impaired users, Quorum is based on usability and human factor concerns. More information on the language can be found at: https://www.quorumlanguage.com
If you or someone you know are interested in receiving training to share Quorum with students at your school, more information can be found on the following link: https://www.quorumlanguage.com/epiq.php
The annual conference is generally held towards the end of the summer and this year will be held at the Yerkes Conservatory in Wisconsin!
