Hour of Code just finished in our school and we couldn’t be more excited about all the things our students, teachers and staff learned about the basics of coding. If you have never tried coding, we promise that through their easy-to-follow exercises you can understand the first steps of building a game, a program, a software or any other digital platform -which comes in really handy when your kids are so immersed in technology. You can visit their website anytime during the year and learn along with your children.
From December 9th until the 15th we got to demystify code through Hour of Code activities, which provide a simple, fun and creative introduction to computer science that shows anybody can learn the basics. It is accessible for all ages regardless of previous coding experience, and one of the best parts (aside from the good laughs you get with their activities) is the skills you gain while practicing: problem-solving skills, logic and creativity to mention just a few!
This worldwide event is an initiative created by Stephen Curry and code.org, and takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week, held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper.
We hope children and adults alike get involved in this great learning experience and discover how computer science can enrich life!
