It was a great week of students participating in the Hour of Code. This week helps promote computer science to boys and girls around the world. It is a great way to show the variety of jobs and possibilities that are within computer science. Thank you to all the staff and students who participated last week!
Mr Wester held the hour of code in his science lesson
Hour of Code is conducted every year during Computer Science Education Week . 2018 Computer Science Education Week was held 3-9 December, but you can have an Hour of Code at any time of the year! Computer Science Education Week is held annually in memory of computer science pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper 's birthday (December 9, 1906).
Some of our more "Tech-savvy" grade 9's helped out during the grade 4 class
Mr Wester had this to say about the week -
Each student should be given the opportunity to learn computer science. It supports problem solving, logical thinking and creativity. By starting early, students will be given the skills they need for a career in the 21st century.
