Hour of Code Coming Soon to Memorial School!

In an effort to teach our very young students how technology works, we will be joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code. Memorial School's 1st graders will participate over the course of two weeks in December. Last year, 15 million students tried computer science during this event. This year, we're joining students worldwide to try to reach 100 million students!  How exciting!!

Dorothy Redding, our fabulous new library assistant, and I piloted teaching coding last week with a small group of students. I can honestly say, this was one of the very best and most fun teaching experiences I have ever had. The kids were completely engaged and super excited to learn how to code. They were planning, sequencing, being creative and much more. Watch the very short video below to see brand new coders helping each other :-)
