UGDSB students have fun with coding during Computer Science Education Week

December 4, 2017

GUELPH, Ontario – December 4 to 10 is Computer Science Education Week. During the week, students around the world will be looking at coding, computer science and how technology can be used in the classroom to enhance the learning experience for students of all ages.

The Hour of Code is a global movement that reaches millions of students throughout the world. This year there are more than 124,800 Hour of Code events happening around the world – 4,030 of these events are happening in Canada, which is an increase from the number of events that took place in Canada last year.

Students do not need previous coding experience to participate in the Hour of Code. Many Hour of Code activities are self-guided and are available at all age and experience levels.

The purpose of the Hour of Code is not to teach students how to code in just one hour, but rather to show students that anyone can learn the basics of coding and see how coding can be a fun activity.

For more information about the Hour of Code and for resources available based on grade, please visit the Hour of Code website
