The students at Whitehall participated in an Hour of Code
this month in library class. Coding is
the first step for anyone to learn computer science. We had a blast programming Alex or Steve in
Minecraft and having the Angry Bird get the pig. The levels were challenging, but the students
persevered and did a fabulous job!
Code.org® is a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra. Code.org organizes the annual Hour of Code campaign which has engaged 10% of all students in the world, and provides the leading curriculum for K-12 computer science in the largest school districts in the United States. Code.org is supported by generous donors including Microsoft, Facebook, the Infosys Foundation, Google, Omidyar Network, and many more.
