Burke’s hosted its second annual week of Hour of Code activities in December. Close to 75 activities kept students in all grades busy throughout each day of the week, from early Open Code before classes started to playing coding games in Tree House after school.
We saw students taking part in activities such as:
-Coding notes into MadeWithCode’s online Music Mixer to create their own songs
-Programming movements and dance steps into interactive Dash robots
-Animating a medieval-era character from a recent reading assignment using a program called Scratch
-Playing all sorts of unplugged games to learn about logic and algorithms
This year, Hour of Code was truly felt across all corners of campus, with all elements of the curriculum finding a place in the week’s activities — even P.E. got in on the action! We invite you to take a look at a selection of those cross-curricular projects in this video.
