Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it compared to a decade ago. Good news is we’re on our way to change this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students tried computer science!
Computer science was on homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement.
This year, Crestwood students were challenged to participate in a number of coding activities done online through the hour of code website. This site has lots of different activities related to programming and is for students of all ages! Student’s completed activities over the week of December 8 – 12, with some students completing over 1000 lines of code!
