Students at ACPC participated in the Hour of Code on Tuesday, December 8. Every student in the school was involved from Kindergarten - 2nd grade at all levels.
We had one young man in 2nd grade earn his coding certificate in around 30 minutes.
We had two kindergarten students complete an entire coding session completely on their own and earn certificates. Several other students (and teachers) earned their certificates as well.
To put this in perspective, many adults were challenged and stuck on several levels of these activities.
The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics.
Students at ACPC certainly proved that they could hang with the best of them.
This activity is so rich in higher order thinking skills that are so critical to the future success of all students. It also covers the very important area known as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). This will certainly become a frequent activity for our students.
