Saint Lucy School students recently participated in the national Hour of Code. The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in more than 180 countries. During this amazing worldwide learning collaboration, over 198,980 Hour of Code events took place.
Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. One hour is all it takes to learn that computer science is fun and creative. Computer science nurtures problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.
Technology Director Joyce Billings instructed the K-8th grade students who were completely engaged and excited to learn how to code in their computer classes. Billings emphasized, “Coding helps students use logic to discover more than one solution a problem. They get an opportunity to think outside the box and collaborate in new and diverse ways.”
Junior High students also used their coding techniques in both math and science classes.
