On December 9th from 4-7pm, Wildwood and OHA families are invited to attend an “Hour of Code” event held at Wildwood Elementary in the Media Center.  This is an international event to increase the understanding of how technology works and to teach foundational 21st century skills.  In the first annual Hour of Code last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week.  This year, students worldwide are joining together in hopes to reach 100 million people!
 
With programming and coding activities, students move from the role of being a “consumer” of someone else’s work/app/game to becoming a “creator” of their own design.
 
The event is free and casual. No sign-up is needed; come for as short or long as your family can. Students do need to be accompanied by an adult; this is not a drop-off and leave event.  Mahtomedi HS students will be assisting students with fun computer programming programs in the computer lab (students can even choose to program the characters from Frozen!), various programming iPad apps, and programmable robots.
 
Although all students will be working on a programming and coding unit in their K-5 Media class in December, this Hour of Code event will extend beyond that curriculum and expose them to other programming activities and concepts. Resources will be provided to families who wish to continue their learning.
