Hour of Code 2017

 

 

 

In the Library Learning Commons  

During Computer Science Education Week, December 4-10th, students have been invited to the Library to participate in coding activities during the Hour of Code!

Hour of Code and creative computing introduces students to basic programming concepts such as repeat-loops, conditions, and simple algorithms in a fun and engaging way. Creative computing can certainly generate an interest in computer science and programming, but the learning goes beyond this; students develop skills that are essential and transferable, such as the ability to:

  • reason systematically
  • sequence
  • problem solve and persevere
  • think critically
  • work collaboratively
  • express ideas using media
  • become fluent using technology

 

Students can continue their learning at home and participate in all the tutorials available at:

Happy Computing!
