Learning around Campus

Hour of Code

"The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. It started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science." - https://hourofcode.com/us#


Last week, learners across Miller joined millions of other learners across the world as they participated in an Hour of Code.

Genius Hour

Would you like to share your genius with us? We would LOVE to have you! Ideas that we have include: yoga instructors, culinary experts, cake decorators, entrepreneurs, wood workers, crocheting, etc. The sky is the limit. What would volunteering entail? Volunteers would need to commit to serving our learners for 3 weeks (one hour each week - Fridays from 7:55 - 8:55 am). We like for these clubs to be interactive, so a project for our learners to complete would be ideal. You can sign up for one Genius Hour Cycle or all of them! Contact shannon_west@misd.gs to volunteer or for more information.


FAQ:

- Will I have help? Yes! At least one staff member will assist you.

- How many students will be in my club? It depends on the club. Our clubs have between 20 - 30 learners.

- Do I need to supply my own materials? Let us know what you need. We can help!


Our next Genius Hour Session Cycle starts after break! Special thanks to Keena Ortiz (crafts), Kori Wilson (cake decorating), Mrs. Elliott's Mother-in-Law (crocheting), and the MHS Basketball Players (Basketball Clinic) for volunteering to lead a club this session cycle. Also, thank you for donating the soap dispensers for our next craft project! We appreciate you!
