Have you ever wondered what makes traffic lights, or ATMs work? Or even the amazing device many of you have in your hand as soon as it turns 3:05 in the afternoon? Have you ever thought it would be fun to create a game for your phone? These things, and many others, are run by computer programs built on computer codes. Next week you have the opportunity to learn how to code, and to take part in an international event called the hour of code.
Every day after school in the Media Center I will be available to show you the basics of programming, and to guide you to a tutorial or a website where you can learn to code. Code.org is trying to get 100 million students around the world to code for an hour the week of Dec 8th. You can learn to write code to help Anna and Elsa create snowflakes and magical “ice craft” while also learning logic, math and cultivating creative confidence. Then, you can share your creations online or with friends!

We live in a digital world. Come discover how you can have a hand in creating a piece of it.
