For the fourth year in a row, GES students are recognizing Computer Science Education Week (December 3-7) by taking part in Hour of Code (Code.org) activities.
All week, students in grades 3-5 will be mentoring first and second graders, and together they’ll try simple coding activities. What a fun way to practice these foundational 21st-century skills!
More info: The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts: https://hourofcode.com/us
