Students at Holy Rosary School in Edmonds joined students across the U.S. taking part in computer programming activities during the “Hour of Code” Initiative that’s part of this week’s National Computer Science Week.
Every Holy Rosary student, from grades K-8, will have the opportunity to try their hand at special computer coding games and skill activities which are designed to increase kids’ interest in computer science. Led by Holy Rosary technology teacher Sheila Walde, the younger students will focus on writing code for a simple video game, while the older students focus directly on coding skills.
“This is an excellent opportunity to expand our students’ computer coding skills and help them explore the idea of a career in computer science,” Walde said. “It’s a lot of fun to see their faces light up when they master a certain skill, and it’s exciting to help inspire the next generation of computer programmers!”
