    My AP CSP students are leading Hour of Code events with some of our elementary classrooms. Age of participants range from Kindergarten through high school. Our Junior High students are doing their own Hour of code events.
  • (Novi)
    Our Girls Who Code club will be hosting a two-day event. We believe that in just one hour we can demystify coding and show that anyone can learn the basics of computer programming. On Tuesday, we'll use a fun, interactive lesson to teach attendees the basics of coding. On Thursday, we'll host a mini-hackathon for one hour to challenge some of our seasoned coders in the school.
  • (Quincy)
    We are doing this as an entire grade level. It helps fuel interest in becoming a programmer for our robotics teams in the middle school and high school. Also, we have had students go on to summer camps and other programs after being exposed to coding through our class and Hour of Code work.

    Muskegon Area Intermediate School District Our students at the Career Tech Center will be traveling to elementary schools and hosting Hour of Code for students across the county.
  • (Farmington Hills)
    I teach CS at two high schools in our district. Each student will be participating in the Hour of Code by facilitating a CS / Coding experience with someone 10 years younger and someone 10 years older in our community with no prior coding experience. Students will reflect on the experience and then we will make a short video to help us highlight the importance of CS education in our community and to help promote our classes. Thanks.
