CHS students tutor younger students in Hour of Code

By Calen McKinney

Campbellsville High School students recently taught younger students how to write computer coding.

Student Technology Leadership Program and AP computer science students, with teacher Sonya Kessler, taught Campbellsville Middle School fourth-graders in Kaye Agathen's social studies class about computer coding.

The CHS students told the fourth-graders that learning computer coding can help them in their future careers. They then led a hands-on activity in which the middle school students wrote computer codes and portrayed robots to test the codes for accuracy.


The activity, which was on Thursday, December 11, was part of Computer Science Education Week.

As part of the week, students worldwide were encouraged to participate in an Hour of Code, a hands-on experience learning to write computer code. More than 750 of Kentucky's schools, businesses and organizations participated in the Hour of Code. In 2013, when the initiative began, there were 30 events. Calen McKinney, the writer, is Public Information Officer for the Campbellsville Independent School District
