North Lamar Students Learning to Code During Hour of Code

Dressed as elves, Higgins first graders Tilly Stewart and Penelope Daniel take part in Hour of Code by completing a project on code.org.

North Lamar ISD classes across the district recently took part in the Hour of Code.

Aaron Parker third graders Hannah Adams and Alazar Nava participate in Hour of Code using a more advance block-based programming called Roboblockly.

“The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science,” said NLISD Technology Specialist Jodie Ingram.  “It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.”

Aaron Parker Gifted and Talented teacher Britany Creamer said, “We try every year to participate in the global Hour of Code.  This year 1,095,931,564 students participated in this global movement in over 45 languages, from over 180 countries!  This is a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science and the kids are always so excited and proud to be a part of it!”

Students received a Certification of Completion for participating in the Hour of Code.

Everett GT teacher Lara Fendley said her kindergarten through third grade students completed a project of choice on Code.org to earn their certificates.  Creamer’s first grade students were introduced to coding using Tynker while her more advanced grades used Roboblockly and Code.org Studio.
