We are excited about celebrating Computer Programming this week!

Time TBA!
In addition to the visit from LTC students, the Learning Commons Team will be available to do Hour of Code Lessons with your students on Tuesday, December 8 and Wednesday, December 9. We will talk about Computer Programming and coding and explore a couple of coding apps. Each lesson will take about an hour. Please let us know if you would like to sign up for a time!
You can also participate in the Hour of Code in your own classroom using iPads or in the computer lab, too!
