e3 Civic High Hour of Code

e3 Civic High will join in the worldwide movement, Hour of Code on December 4th. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.
We believe that every scholar at e3 should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, scholars will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
Check out some of the tutorials and activities. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide.

UCSD & San Diego Padres Partner with e3 Civic High for STEM Career Day!

Earlier this month, Dudek introduced Bobby and his own unconventional career path to about 90 e3 scholars. UC San Diego Health staff walked with scholars to Petco Park for a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) career day.

“When the San Diego Padres selected UC San Diego as their official health care provider earlier this year, it was important to both organizations to collaborate on health and education outreach efforts in the local community,” said Patty Maysent, CEO of UC San Diego Health. It was at that time they chose to partner with e3 Civic High and engage scholars to the plethora of STEM careers that exist in major league baseball and the healthcare industry.

During the event, Dudek, Eric Hernandez, community health program representative from the Shiley Eye Institute at UC San Diego Health, and Brian McBurney, director of Baseball Research and Development for the Padres, spoke to the scholars about nontraditional STEM careers available in health care and sports.

“We have the types of careers nobody ever says they’re going to be when they grow up, because they don’t exist then,” Dudek said. “Now, STEM is the foundation for many careers, even if you don’t plan to become an engineer or a doctor. And even if you do, doctors can’t purely specialize in medicine without also incorporating technology — from learning a new procedure using virtual reality, to using electronic medical records or robots that assist in surgery.” The expert panel was moderated by Dr. Griffith and the scholars were particularly interested to learn about the connections between health care and sports, and how STEM is woven in to so many careers. After lunch they enjoyed a behind the scenes tour of Petco Park.

When reflecting on the trip, Zora, a 10th grader stated, “Today has really been a reality check to show we’re not learning STEM just because… there are actually a lot of uses for these subjects”. She hopes to pursue a career that uses mathematics — her favorite STEM subject. Thank you UC San Diego Health Care and San Diego Padres for this transformational partnership.
