Students Learn How to Code

During the week of December 4-8, all of the students in Burns Avenue learned some of the basic skills that are involved in computer programming.  Students participated in the Hour of Code which was sponsored by and was part of Computer Science Education Week.  As part of the Hour of Code, students learned how to create a computer program using commands such as Turn Left, Turn Right, Repeat, and If/Then in order to move characters through mazes and navigate them through scenes from Star Wars and Minecraft.  All of the students really enjoyed coding and will hopefully continue to explore the world of computer programming in the future.
