Merced is dedicated to enriching the lives of our Panthers in a variety of ways, including programs special to Merced! We feature structured recess options, dance, and coding! Our Panther are well-rounded and ready for success!
Our 3rd-5th 5th grade students enjoy Coding/Robotics Class. They learn how to create their own games and animations in Scratch, a powerful visual programming language and learning environment developed by MIT. They will employ basic, intermediate and advanced programming concepts as they complete increasingly complex projects. They will learn to think like a programmer and solve problems with code.
Merced has partnered with the West Covina High School Robotics team (due to PTA-Sponsorship) to enrich our students education through interactive field trips. Merced students love being able to create, experiment, and learn more about STEM.
