Editor's Note: Bourne Middle School's Computer Coding Teacher, Judy Lunedei, graciously shared her school's plans for the Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week. Activities like those Ms. Lunedei describes makes us wish we were in middle school again...
Computer Science Education Week begins on December 5th and all the students at Bourne Middle School, grades 5 through 8, will be actively participating by completing an Hour of Code activity on the code.org website.
Students in 5th, 6th and 7th grade at Bourne Middle School currently take Computer Coding as part of their curriculum. This class focuses on developing programming knowledge and enhancing mathematical skills by using the coding concepts and programming languages associated with Scratch, Bootstrap 1, and Bootstrap 2.
This is an exciting opportunity because students are able to select an activity of their choice which they can code using an unfamiliar language and create a program that directly reflects their personal interests while expanding their coding knowledge.
We can’t wait to see what our students create!
