Gillispie Joins in the Worldwide Celebration of Computer Science: Hour of Code 2022

Each year students from around the world engage in fun computer science challenges to spark their curiosity and enhance their hands-on coding experiences during the annual Hour of Code. Hundreds of free coding and unplugged challenges are available for anyone. Gillispie elementary students will participate in the Hour of Code through a variety of activities, which will begin with an inspirational video from astronauts at the International Space Station!

Students in K through Grade 1 will rotate through centers where they can program our favorite Beebots and Mousebots, or play Kodables, an age-appropriate visual programming language made for K through Grade 2 grade students. Our 2nd and 3rd graders will apply their skills to coding challenges using visual programming language, while our 4th and 5th graders will discover text-based coding challenges using Javascript and Python. Some of our youngest Gillispie students in PreK will be able to explore coding with our Beebots!

For more information about this event, please visit the Hour of Code website. Check out our own Gillispie Parent Tech Tips website for information on digital citizenship and age-appropriate apps.
