Hour of Code

Jouett Elementary School hosted “Hour of Code” on Monday, November 19th.

“Hour of Code” is a national movement aimed at introducing students to computer science and coding as part of an effort to increase interest in engineering and technology.

Several learnings stations were set up in the JES gymnasium, and volunteers from LCHS were on hand to assist students.

Students learned how to code through games and other programs. They also learned how to hack (in a constructive way!), and how to input codes to control robots.

“We do coding as part of the STEAM program all year long,” JES STEAM teacher James Snider said. “Today is our day of code. It’s where we celebrate what we’ve learned, practice it, try out new stuff, and just come in and see everyone else working on code alongside yourself.”

“It’s been great to see them have fun and explore all of the things they’ve learned about in STEAM class, “LCPS tech coach Cheryl Weidow said. “We’ve  had some high school kids helping out today too and it’s been great to see that interaction between the older and younger kids.”

Great job, Trailblazers!
