It's vitally important that our students have a good understanding of computers, how to use them, and how they work. To help students meet these goals, check out some of these ideas for middle school computer projects.

Computer Projects for Middle School

Computers are central to all aspects of life these days. Many people spend almost their entire day on computers, both for working, and leisure time. If computers disappeared tomorrow, it's not an exaggeration to say that the world's economy would nose-dive. Computers are vital in our modern age.

It's therefore equally vital that our students understand how to use them and can navigate through an increasingly computerized world. We can help with this goal by having our students complete computer projects. Here are some ideas for middle school computer projects you can try.

Sports Spreadsheet

Spreadsheets are among the most useful pieces of software on a computer, yet most people don't know how to use them effectively. While you can teach an entire course on how to use spreadsheets, a more active and fun approach is to have students figure it out themselves as they attempt to complete a goal.
