SRW Students Commit to Participate in the Hour of Code
During the week of December 7-13, every SRW student from Kindergarten through grade 8 will join millions of students from all over the world to try an Hour of Code, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to expose students to code and show that anybody can learn the basics. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity.
The Hour of Code is organized by Code.org, a public 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools. An impressive coalition of partners have come together to support the Hour of Code, including Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and the College Board.
Mrs. Tracy Davis, the Enrichment teacher at SRW, has been formally trained in code. She has taught her students the basics of coding and many of them have embraced the skill and have logged many hours already. Many of the tutorials and coding challenges are engaging for students using characters from Disney, Hot Wheels, and even Star Wars. Mrs. Davis has also trained the classroom teachers in code. Ss. Robert and William Catholic School is a registered participant in this unprecedented endeavor, and is excited and ready to take on the challenge!
