This past week close to 4,000 of our students and well over 100 of our teachers participated in Hour of Code! We saw an amazing variety of activities across all eight of our schools and all grade levels, including coding, game design, animation, robotics, sound design and many more. You can check out some of these great experiences on Twitter using #USDLearns and #HourofCode.
Our elementary STEAM ToSAs did a wonderful job of promoting Hour of Code and supporting their teachers in creating engaging and challenging opportunities to allow our students to explore computer science and programming. We also saw many great coding activities in our middle schools. Every student and teacher who participated in Hour of Code will receive an exclusive Hour of Code sticker designed by one of our very own students, Dartmouth 8th grader Ashita Apurva:
Thank you to everyone who participated in Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week and congratulations to this year's randomly selected Hour of Code winner, Nina Lamour, 5th grade teacher at Carlton Avenue School! Keep up the great work and if you haven't started coding with your class yet, it's never too late to start!
