Students at Calloway Smith are getting a hands on opportunity to see real world experiences through coding.

Rural sourcing is teaching the kids how to code, giving them experience with challenges.

Leontyne Jones, teacher, says she thinks her students are learning valuable material they can take back and apply in the classroom and real life.

Leontyne Jones said told NBC, “What I’ve seen and what I think they have seen is collaboration. That’s very important for our students. Time management is also very important for our students in class and in the real world. So, they will take some of those skills back to school with them.”

The kids also got the chance to see how 3-D printers work and an inside look at how tech companies are run.
