Hour of Code

Do you want to watch students actively engaged in their own learning?
Do you want to see students solve complex problems based on what they learn from their failures?
Do you want to see students explore computer science?
The Answer~
Introduce the Hour of Code!
"During Computer Science Education Week, which runs from Dec. 7 to Dec. 13, more than 184,000 schools and programs worldwide will host’s “Hour of Code,” an initiative to show K-12 students that computer science can be fun."

The laptops, iPads, and computers were very busy this week as students at Steward School and Proctor School joined others around the world solving problems while working on the Hour of Code. 

Students in grades 2 and 3 began with the Classic Maze with "Angry Birds" chasing the Pig.

Students in grades 4 and 5 were given the option of "Minecraft", "Star Wars" or "Frozen".

MassTLC sent us this poster and pins for everyone!

The Challenge was to work to complete the program and then to go on and create your own game.
Daniel accepted the challenge. Click the picture below to play his game.

Here is a little picture collage of all that was happening this week~
