Computer science week at Timberline was awesome! Students K - 8 were able to learn about computers, coding and robotics. All students went online to Hour of Code to practice their programming skills and also used some apps on the ipads. By having students learn about the programming they are learning another language that will help them in the future. Students had to communicate with the technology to make the robot or the creature on the app do some sort of action.
To celebrate Computer Science Education Week, Rocky Mountatin Elemantary participated in the hour of code. Every student from preschool to fifth grade spent an hour building, designing, and coding. To Find out more about the Hour of Code, check out the Hour of Code website.
Computers are everywhere, but fewer schools teach computer science than 10 years ago. Good news is, we’re well on our way to changing this. If you heard about the Hour of Code last year, you might know it made history. In one week, 15 million students tried computer science!

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
