Hour of Code: An
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we
know that whatever field our students choose to go into as
adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on
understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction
of us are learning computer science, and less students are
studying it than a decade ago. An
coalition of partners have come together to support the
Hour of Code, too — including Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Boys
and Girls Clubs of America and the College Board.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the
largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during
Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13).
More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried
an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is a statement that Nicholson is ready
to teach these foundational 21st century skills. The
activities they will be doing will give them an introduction
into how computer programming works using coding. They
will use age appropriate self-guided tutorials to build
their own games such as Star Wars, Minecraft, and Frozen.
