On Friday, December 11th, SFC participated in the Hour of Code for the second year in a row. Hour of Code is a worldwide initiative run by Code.org. The premise is simple- “Every student in every school should have an opportunity to learn computer science.” Hour of Code means students spend just one hour learning some of the basics of computer science.
This year, SFC held Hour of Code for every student in the school on the same day. That’s all 291 of our students, from kindergarten through 8th grade, getting a taste of what it means to be a computer programmer. We did it with the help of volunteers from Salesforce and also with our own staff and parent volunteers. We used Code.org’s online courses– K-3 did the Minecraft course, and 4-8 did the Star Wars course.
Here are a few pictures from the day:
