Hour of Code is this Week! - December 7th - 13th

What is the Hour of Code?
The Hour of Code is an hour-long introduction to computer programming designed to demystify coding and show students that everyone can learn the basics.


Hour of Drawing with Code: Students will learn to program using JavaScript, one of the world's most popular programming languages via two great options:

  • Drag-and-drop: block-based coding for younger students with less typing experience and students on tablet devices (ages 8+).
  • Typing: keyboard-based coding for older students (ages 10+).

Hour of Webpages: Students will learn to make their own webpages using the basics of HTML and CSS (ages 10+).

https://www.khanacademy.org/computing/hour-of-code/hour-of-html/v/making-webpages-intro


Hour of Databases: Students will learn the fundamentals of databases using SQL to create tables, insert data into them, and do basic querying (ages 12+).

Hour of Code at www.code.org to sign up for their special hour programming.


We urge you to take your students to the computer labs during Enrichment this week to participate.
