Upper School students and members of our faculty celebrated Computer Science Education Week with the national movement called The Hour of Code. After an introduction from the Science and Engineering Club officers, students and administrators learned several great programming tips. They immediately tried out their new skills by programming fun lights on a digital Christmas tree, decorating snowflakes, and composing upbeat music. Many other students programmed games using Javascript. In addition to setting up new Chromebooks, our Technology Director, Rick Tindol, supplied a virtual disco ball to add the perfect ambiance for the celebration!


Aside from learning new skills and experience first hand how easy and creative programming can be, several students asked that more events be scheduled in the future! The Science and Engineering club is already making plans to do just that as well as plan an even bigger Hour of Code event for next year. “Hour of Code is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science.”
