Hour of Code!

As part of our continued commitment to STEM education, St. Louis School is proud to be participating in the global Hour of Code event again this year. The Hour of Code is celebrated during Computer Science Education Week (December 3 through 9) and takes place in more than 180 countries across 200,000 events. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer operations, designed to demystify "code” and to show that anyone can learn the basics. Since then it has grown into a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science. This past week students in Mrs. Phelps’ and Mrs. Whiteford’s Computer Classes (Grades K through 8) participated in age-appropriate coding activities.

The students are encouraged to continue exploring the activities offered on the Hour of Code website (www.hourofcode.com) beyond what we are doing in the classroom. Thank you to Code.org for this remarkable opportunity! #SLSSTEM
