Holyoke Wins Brain Bowl For Second Consecutive Year!
Three teams from Holyoke Elementary school traveled to Ft. Morgan on Saturday February 1st to compete in the annual Optimist Club Brain Bowl. In an academic competition with twenty other teams from Northeast Colorado the Holyoke students participated in one written round and four oral rounds of questions. At the conclusion of the regular rounds, the competition was narrowed to the top two teams who participated in the championship round. For the second year in a row, the third-fourth grade team took top honors winning in the final round against Wiggins Elementary.
Hour of Code
Students at Holyoke Elementary participated in the Hour of Code program that was sponsored by "Computer Science Education." Students learned computer programing from top technology leaders such as Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg. Over ten million students worldwide participated in the computer science program designed to develop students' computational and critical thinking skills. Computer science allows students to learn to create and not just use new technologies, and it is one of the top paying college degrees with jobs that are growing at twice the national average.
