On December 6, 2016, the sixth graders participated in the Hour of Code. The Hour of Code is an event that hundreds of schools around the world take part in. This program was created to help students find an interest in coding and technology. Code is a very important part in technology; it is used in games, apps, and all aspects of computer technology.
During our Hour of Code, we had to solve different puzzles using certain blocks to make Moana or Maui, the Disney characters, act or move.
“It was really interesting to know that coding was actually so easy!” Izzy explained.
“It was fun and challenging but hard to drag words to make the characters move or act in a certain way,” said Cutter, one of the many students who completed the difficult challenges in the Hour of Code.
Have you ever considered having a career in coding or technology?
Did you know that careers in technology and coding are some of the highest paying jobs available? There are many opportunities to get a job in computer science!
This is what the sixth grade thought about coding and how to use this in technology:
“It was interesting to see how students engaged in the process and were problem solvers when coding became more complex,” stated Mrs. Sabina.
“Coding is awesome!” said Hunter, the first student in the sixth grade to complete the Hour of Code.
Anyone can learn how to code. We, the sixth graders, encourage you to try the Hour of Code!
