Hemby Bridge Students Participate in Hour of Code

Hemby Bridge Students Learned Computer Science During Hour of Code

On Tuesday, December 6, Hemby Bridge students in every grade level participated in the Hour of Code, a worldwide event that has been called “the largest worldwide learning event in history”.  Students were introduced to the world of coding and learned about the importance of technology careers in our society.  They then worked in a variety of programs provided by Code.org to learn how programmers use coding in creating computer applications.  Even Kindergarten students were able to help fuzzy Smeeborg navigate a labyrinth in Kodable, one of the options on the site designed for pre-readers.  The students were excited to be called programmers for a day and many students are now interested in exploring computer science further.
