    Our hour of code event will be happening in Library classes during the entire week of Computer Science Education Week - students in grades K-8 will all participate. On the Wednesday of that week we have engineers from Google coming to our school to work with students in grades 4-8, these students will get to try out Google virtual reality!
  • (Harwich)
    Our "Hour of Code" leads into a fun, six-week unit on coding for all 80 of our sixth grade students.

    This is a special event because students taking the Exploring Computer Science class in the high school walk down to the elementary school to help facilitate the hour of code with those students.

    After my ESL students have participated in Hour of Code in class, I will be hosting an after school event on December 14th so families can come participate in activities with their children.
  • (Tewksbury)
    We will be continuing our Hour of Code study in our "Future Ready" class to help our students be prepared for their future. The Merrimack Center is a Joint Commission-accredited Intensive Residential Treatment Program (IRTP) specializing in trauma informed care for youth between the ages of 13-18, who are coping with serious mental illness, intellectual disabilities, and challenging behaviors. Our goal is to build on each individual's potential to overcome behavioral challenges, learn social skills, and build competencies.
  • A&Q Gifted and Talented Academy (Brookline)
    We will simply be continuing on with as much as can be learned after the One Hour -- we will utilize the resources on the site year round!
  • Bresnahan School (Newburyport)
    This is such a special event because the entire school will be participating during STEM classes. The students will be doing prep lessons the week before the Hour of Code week. We did this for the first time last year and we go such positive feedback from the school, parents, and the community. The newspaper came and did an article and will be doing so as well this year. Last year I signed up right away and never got posters for the event. We would love to make sure we get them this year. Thank you
