The Hour of Code is back and better than ever! The first year 15 million students around the globe participated in The Hour of Code - This year, they are pushing for the number to reach 200 million!

We want all of the students at PALCS to again be a part of this exciting experience during Computer Science Education week - December 7th - 13th. Coding can be done by students from Kindergarten through Senior Year here at PALCS - and maybe even some of the Home Facilitators would like to give it a try!

Elementary Students should view the information from Mrs. Suski for your instructions.
Middle School and High School students may go to the site and work independently on any program of interest - just read the introductions and look for the age recommendations to pick the best one for you.

There are multiple levels and multiple programs to choose from. Each of the coding tutorials will include a video clip or specific instructions to guide you through the hour of coding session. All tutorials are self-guided and allow you to work at your own pace. New for this year:

  • Minecraft for the Hour of Code
  • Star Wars for the Hour of Code
  • Artist for the Hour of Code

Click The "Angry Birds" Link Below and Get Started!!


When finished, please click on the completion survey link found at the bottom of this page - we want to track how many PALCS students participate in this important worldwide initiative.
