Stevenson Elementary students have been participating in Hour of Code for several years and have had varying levels of experience with coding in their classrooms and after school clubs.
Third grade students learned about how important Computer Science is for future careers and explored how you can blend the world of computer programming with any area you are interested in, such as zoos, hospitals, building and sports.
Students in sixth grade each explored a coding site and wrote a review for their classmates. Once they presented the various sites available, students participated in Hour of Code where they learned to code at levels that challenged their coding experience level. They are learning Scratch, Java Script, Alice, Python and HTML coding languages.
Students in the after-school Coding Club are earning a Passport to Computer Science in an eight-week course designed to blend the worlds of Scratch Coding and Storytelling.
