Hour of Code Week at RSU 21

RSU 21 students learned about programming and coding and kindergarteners were introduced to vocabulary including algorithm - a series of steps to complete a task.  Like their morning algorithm of hanging coats, signing up for lunch, unpacking bags and doing morning work. They watched inspirational videos by athletes on coding and some watched: How Computer Science is Changing the World.  Middle school students looked at statistics about computer science and the career opportunities available in the US and Maine.  The culminating activities included Kodable for primary grades, and programming which featured Moana, Minecraft, and Star Wars for older students. The tutorials will be available for the next year at www.code.org/learn

Thanks to our staff for a successful fun filled week of coding
