West Bainbridge Elementary participated in the Hour of Code during the week of December 7th - 11th. What is the Hour of Code? It is a one-hour activity during which students of all ages can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, for kindergarten and up. Tutorials work on any modern browser, tablet, smartphone, or even with no computer at all. Code.org’s own tutorials feature Disney’s Frozen, Scrat from Ice Age, Angry Birds, Plants vs. Zombies, Minecraft, and Star Wars. Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they’re empowered to keep going. Why computer science? Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to take part in creating technology that’s changing our world. The basics help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career. But most schools still don’t teach computer science. West Bainbridge Elementary hopes to change that.
