Primary Nordelta & Olivos, March 2019 - What's going on?


On Friday March 29th, both our Olivos and Nordelta sites had visits from Amazon Web Services. Ezequiel Do Rego, the parent of one of our Y5 students, and Sofia Guidotti, a Northlands Olivos graduate, led the group of 5 employees of Amazon who came to speak to the Y5 and Y6 students about the importance of learning to code. He made a presentation about this history of Amazon, what Amazon does in Argentina, and how coding and programming are a fundamental skill for all students to learn in this day and age. After his presentation, all of the students participated in a coding activity using their iPads where they programmed a variety of animated characters to dance. They loved it!

El viernes 29 de marzo, ambas sedes de Olivos y Nordelta, recibieron una visita de Amazon Web Services. Ezequiel Do Rego, el padre de una alumna en Y5 y Sofia Guidotti, una Old Northlander, vinieron con un grupo de 5 directivos de Amazon para hablar con los alumnos de Y5 y Y6 sobre la importancia de aprender a programar. Hicieron una presentación sobre la historia de Amazon, el negocio de Amazon en Argentina y explicaron que la programación es una habilidad fundamental para todos los alumnos hoy en día. Después de la presentación, todos los alumnos participaron en una actividad con sus iPads donde programaron varios personajes animados para bailar. Les encantó!
