Coding can seem daunting to the uninitiated, and that’s just what Hour of Code seeks to change! Hour of Code, which takes place annually during Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13, 2020), introduces students to computer science. It’s designed to demystify code, to show that anyone can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science.
On Wednesday, our math teachers led students in Hour of Code activities!
Mrs. Null and Ms. Ortale introduced their students to a new coding platform. Mrs. Null says, “My son, David Null, led an activity on MIT's coding website Scratch via Zoom. David is a Ph.D. student in Electrical Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.”
Watch Alex Peter describe coding in Python.
Here are some great kid-centric coding resources from Ms. Ortale:
