LCSD Participates in #HourOfCode2017
Are you participating in #HourOfCode2017? Students from across the Lansing Central School District are!
This week students from LCSD are celebrating the annual Hour of Code and Computer Science Week with the Hour of Code campaign. Hour of Code is an initiative started by code.org. The campaign encourages students to learn more about computer science, and in turn demystifies coding. In showing students the basics of coding, they are encouraged to develop an interest in computer science. Code.org has successfully engaged ten percent of students from across the world, grades K-12.
Starting on Dec. 4, students from LCSD began participating in the Hour of Code program. At R.C. Buckley Elementary School, three classes spent an hour coding on Monday, Dec. 4. To get started with coding, students used the website Scratch to create stories, games, and animations.
“I hope that this is just a kick-off for my students,” said Laura Larkin, a fourth grade teacher at R.C. Buckley Elementary School. “I plan to incorporate coding into the school day from here on out. Today our students had a blast using Scratch.”
Follow along all week to see what else LCSD students learn to do during #HourOfCode2017!
