Hour of code

Wow, it’s been a while! Yesterday I got the opportunity to participate in Hour of Code, a global program that tries to get kids learning what code is and how it’s used every day.

I talked yesterday with Mrs. Hansens’ 2nd-grade class at Lincoln Elementry, Bemidji for about 20 minutes, giving examples of what code is and how it’s all around us. Afterward, I helped students work through logic problems in their computer lab using Scratch. I was amazed at how quick the students just “got it” when working through the problems.

Hour of Code a great program and hopefully they’ll ask me to participate next time.
