All Springhill students participated in Hour of Code activities last week to celebrate Computer Science Education Week. Some of Coach Giles’ Computer Science students from the High School came over to assist our younger students with the activities. The goal in completing the Hour of Code is to make coding and computer programming accessible to all students. Coding is a fun and engaging way for students to practice creativity, perseverance, and problem solving skills. Students in grades 3rd-5th got to code their very own dance party, so students celebrated with a real dance party as they entered the classroom Governor Hutchinson has made a big push in our state to raise awareness for the field of computer science and it is our hope that some of our students will go on to do incredible things through the power of programming computers. While we love celebrating the Hour of Code in the first week of December along with students all over the globe, the students at Springhill Elementary have the opportunity to engage in coding and computer science activities year round in the Library Media Center with Mrs. Crymes and are also introduced to many basic computer science concepts in other subject areas.
