Our Grade 8 students will be delivering a lesson to younger students on how to code. Ms Dareen will be introducing our students to Lightbot a program puzzle game which teaches programming logic to all from K-12. All teachers are invited to sign up for classes on Wednesday when our students will be taking part in "Hour Of Code".
available on the iTunes app store and Google App store
Cargobot is another programming app which teaches fun coding skills.
This is what the write up on itunes has to say about the hour of coding initiative.
"Lightbot One Hour Coding is created specifically for The 'Hour of Code', a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming."
