OP Students Take On the Code – Friday, December 11, Orchard Place students participated in the worldwide effort known as the Hour of Code, which was promoted during Dec. 7-13 as part of Computer Science Education Week.

While we know how important it is for students to learn how to navigate today’s tech-saturated world, this event is a chance to see what computer science is about. The hope is that one hour will spark interest in students to keep learning. Research also shows that kids pick up programming concepts before they know how to read and write. In fact, their brains are more receptive to computer languages at a young age, just like foreign languages.

Using tutorials, students learned how to do very basic computer programming. All of the instruction featured popular characters or stories familiar to children, including zombies, the game Minecraft and the movie "Frozen," to pique their interests in manipulating blocks of code. The experience is challenging for students who have never worked with coding, but it quickly paid off for some. You could tell that students got it or made it to the next level with each fist pump.
