In order for our school to get credit for participating in Computer Science Education Week, the Instructional technology Department is requiring that we share images and videos capturing our students experiences. If you see a child coding, "Talking CODE", having fun, etc. Please snap a pic and share it with Mrs. Glass. You can use the Bingo card below for additional ideas!!! You know I have prizes for the educator you shouts out their class the MOST!!!! Must be code related.

You can email images to Mrs. Glass daily, share them via our campus Google + community, or tweet them out!!! Use #GPcodes and most importantly #CS4Aldine. You can also tag Mrs. Glass on Twitter: @SVicGlass
