Hour of Code @ TRMS

STEM School

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!

 

Trail Ridge Middle Schoolers were a part of history as they participated in two hours of coding this week. Many teachers learned aside their students, too. Students and teachers visited http://code.org/learn to start their coding journey. Students were directed to beginner, intermediate, and advanced coding tasks.

 

Hour of Code is a global push to introduce people of all ages to computer science skills. Computer science was featured on the homepages of Google, MSN, Yahoo! and Disney. President Obama, Shakira, and Ashton Kutcher all kicked off the Hour of Code with videos. Over 100 partners came together to support this movement.

We encourage you to ask your child what they did during the Hour of Code. Most all coding activities are iPad friendly. Try learning some code this week at http://code.org/learn!
