All Key School students Pre-Kindergarten through grade twelve will participate in the Hour of Code in celebration of Computer Science Education Week (12/9 – 12/15). This international campaign, launched in mid-November by code.org, has set a goal of introducing more than 10 million students to computer science by providing an assortment of hour-long online tutorials. The tutorials, which require no previous experience of participants or educators, are varied to accommodate a wide participation base.
Every Key student will participate in this campus wide endeavor, which will incorporate both online and offline aspects. The activities will range from the Pre-Kindergarten’s physical education coder-robot exercise and introduction to sequencing on iPads to the Middle and Upper School’s coding discussions and tutorials featuring Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Angry Birds.
The Hour of Code tutorials will also be available for Key School parents and siblings to explore, discover, and practice at home.
Key School students will be among the two million already planning to participate in the Hour of Code. For more information, please visit csedweek.org
