Wallace Community College-Selma launches mobile computer lab at Meadowview Elementary

Wallace Community College-Selma (WCCS) launched its mobile computer lab Tuesday at Meadowview Elementary School.

Twenty students from the third to fifth-grade were chosen for the project at Meadowview Elementary.  Students explored the mobile lab and began Apple coding classes creating computer programming projects.

Meadowview Elementary Principal Pamela Rackley said WCCS is partnering with the school’s Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) lab.

“WCCS is a vital part of our program,” Rackley said. “It’s part of the STEM initiative. WCCS will come to Meadowview monthly.”

Abigail Carter, Cayden Hall, Ziah Motley, Avery Nicholas, Zariah Williams and Brandon Wooten are the third-graders. Jeremiah Alvarado, Walter Curtis, Amari England, Evan Moss, Ciara Perkins and Taylor Tisdale are the fourth-grade students. Kyla Bates, Chasity Brown, Kaitlyn Davis, Jordan Glover, Kimyia Hicks, Madison Jatko, Brody Phillips and Fredrick Shelton are the fifth-grade students.

Dr. Marilyn Hannah, WCCS Chairperson and Instructor of Business and Computer Science, said Meadowview Elementary is the first Black Belt School to participate in the Mobile lab demonstrations.

“Our purpose is to introduce the students to coding,” Hannah said. “Students will get a chance to build an apple or android application.”
