The Hour of Code will be happening December 7-13. This is a wonderful and easy opportunity to get kids involved with coding skills as early as Kindergarten. We have had several WCS classroom participate in past years with a high level of engagement from students. You do not need any coding skills to participate, just a willingness to let students visit the website and participate!
It only takes one hour to do the Hour of Code lesson. If you organize an official Hour of Code activity at their website, you will receive a gift card to iTunes, Amazon or the Windows Store as a thank you. Register today!
In addition, there is a local opportunity for elementary teachers to be trained in the elementary code.org K-5 curriculum, for free, at ITSCO on November 14, 2015 from 9am-3pm.
If you know of any teachers who would be interested in attending, please have them register here https://code.org/professional-development-workshops/5038620
