Junior High Fun!

Hour of Code


This year Grades 6-8 once again participated in the annual HOUR OF CODE! Hour of Code is a free program that allows students to learn the basics of computer programming and problem solving. This year Students were able to design their animated cartoons inspired by heros! It was very entertaining seeing our students problem solve, learn how to program their animations, their story telling, as well as their design and creativity. Once students completed their animation they wrote a short story inspired by what they did. 


Computer programming is a growing field in STEM, but more importantly it allows students to work on their problem solving and critical thinking skills. We also loved being able to add an English Language Arts element this year.
