What is the Fern Creek Coding Project?

The Fern Creek Coding Project was founded in August of 2012 by Sarah Stack and Kyle Christian Steele with the help of Fern Creek Elementary faculty and staff. The program utilizes Storytelling Alice which was created by Caitlin Kelleher as part of her doctoral work in Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. Storytelling Alice is designed to motivate a broad spectrum of school students to learn to program computers through creating short 3D animated movies.

Students are introduce to the program at the beginning of the academic school year and receive a high-level of instruction and support from instructors and the local Orlando technology community. The program concludes in late January when students present their 3D stories to classmates, teachers, administrators and other community supporters at a local technology company.

Our Goal:

To provide every child with an opportunity to learn an in-demand skill set and impact our world by introducing resource-friendly and sustainable software coding programs into every elementary school.
