Code Night

On Tuesday, December 6th, the Coloma Elementary buildings hosted a Family Code Night. Over the course of an hour, families were able to participate in the Hour of Code, an initiative to introduce more students and families to the growing opportunities in the Computer Science industry. Family Code Night is part of the Computer Science for All initiative from the White House as there are many high paying computer science jobs available in the United States. When the families arrived, Mrs. Kimmerly introduced the purpose of the evening and went over some of the directions, and then the student-parent pairs began the self-paced, self-guided, mastery style learning opportunity to begin coding and programming a computer. The objective was to code an "Angry Bird" to get the "Evil Pigs" for taking their eggs. Through a series of blocks of code, students were able to defeat the "evil pigs" and when they did, the enjoyment could be heard by all in the room. Laughter, smiles, and critical thinking filled the evening as students and parents were introduced to the possibilities that are within the Computer Science industry. If you would like to learn more about the Hour of Code, check out their website at Code.org. Other excellent resources include the free version of Tynker, Khan Academy, and Lego's Bits and Bricks options. Also, stay tuned as we are beginning to plan a grades 4-8 coding camp this summer.
