“Like playing games” is how Jon Longley jokes about his pleasure in teaching computer science to youngsters at the Elm Street School in Mechanic Falls. “You can call it games,” he says, “but computers are great for teaching mathematics and science.” Longley instructs first through sixth graders for 60 minutes once weekly, and seventh through ninth graders for 45 minutes every other day for eight weeks.
