The Middleburg Community Charter School in Middleburg, VA was the setting for presidential advisor and daughter of the president, Ivanka Trump’s morning visit.  Trump is launching her focus on STEM education and curriculum which stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

This follows her father, President Trump, signing a memorandum on Monday directing the Department of Education to spend $200 million to boost education for science, technology, engineering, and math–every year.

Trump was joined at the Charter School by Code.org CEO Hadi Partovi.  Code.org is a non-profit focused on the expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Code’s vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra.

Trump was also joined by executives from Microsoft.

Loudoun is already an innovator in child education regarding technology.

As the Tribune reported last month in Computer Coding By Loudoun Elementary Students, every student in every grade level at Meadowland Elementary, Moorefield Station Elementary, and Round Hill Elementary will take part in computer coding activities for at least 30 minutes every day thanks to a partnership with Code to the Future.
