In celebration of Computer Science Education Week, Linden Grove School students took part in the “Hour of Code” campaign.
“Hour of Code” is a worldwide initiative dedicated to expanding access to computer science. It was created based on the idea that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra.
Hour of Code’s website offers one-hour tutorials on coding for students age 4 to 104 in 45 different languages on topics ranging from Puppies for pre-readers to Star Wars and sports games. For those who want to go “Beyond an Hour of Code,” there are also extended online tutorials.
Some of the projects LGS students worked on were coding their own “flappy bird” or Star Wars themed games.
