Hour of Code @ SHS!
Seekonk High is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week next week (Dec. 8-11). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!
Every science class will come to the SHS Library Media Center to try their hand at coding to create simple games for one period next week. Local professionals who work in computer science/technology fields will visit to share their career pathway stories, interact, and inspire students as they participate in this fun, casual event.
Check out this short video and visit website and try coding at http://hourofcode.com ! And join the chat on Twitter using the hashstag #SeekonkHourOfCode.
