GLS Students participate in Hour of Code

Students at Grass Lake School participated in the global Hour of Code as part of Computer Science Education Week.

Coding is a process to make a computer follow specific instructions and is a high-demand skill in the current job market.

The Hour of Code began as a way to introduce students to computer science. The Hour of Code is designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. The Hour of Code campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide!

During the National Computer Science Education Week, the Jr. High AV Club students facilitated coding activities for all Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students.

GLS Fifth grade students have the opportunity to learn coding in a new class this year, C3. The “Three C’s” are Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking. Students create their projects in Scratch!, develop higher level thinking skills, and foster their collaboration skills by helping one another “debug” and test their code.
