Hour of Code

December 8-14 is Computer Science Education Week. To introduce students to computer programming, the Learning Lizards completed an “Hour of Code”.

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics

We played different games and completed different activities to learn how to write computer codes. Some were more challenging than others.

We learnt to persist with challenging tasks and to work collaboratively to achieve our goals.

Miss Fraser was extremely impressed with our persistence, collaboration and enthusiasm for expanding our coding skills. Although it was a little tricky at first, once we were shown how to drag the action blocks it was much easier to manipulate the characters.

What did you think of the Hour of Code? Is it something you would like to try again?
