Computer Science Week

Computer Science Week

Superior North Catholic District School Board (SNCDSB) celebrates Computer Science Education Week December 3 - 9, 2018.

Computer Science Education Week is held the first week in December in recognition of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). Computer Science Education Week began to broaden the field of computer science and is a global movement to celebrate computer science through Hour of Code. Students practice problem-solving, sequencing and innovating through coding and robotics.

SNCDSB celebrated Hour of Code through the Hour of Code website and using Beebot, Dash and Lego EV3 robots. The Hour of Code website supports students learning the basics of how to read and write code. Through the Hour of Code website students don’t play games, they learn to program games.

Students persevered through various programming opportunities, collaborating and sharing their functioning programs with their friends and teachers. Students earned a sense of accomplishment after completing their coding challenge and many received a personalized Hour is Code certificates.
