Ephesus Elementary "Codes the Machines" in our annual participation in the Hour of Code™

Classes participated from December 4, 2017 through December 15, 2017.

Ephesus Elementary School is proud to continue the tradition of participating in the worldwide Hour of Code™event.

In addition to an hour of coding in our 1:1 learning environments, students can also participate in "unplugged" computer science fundamentals activities.

In January 2018, we are launching our EES Coders littleBits Club for early arrival and our winter enrichment club.

This year we are participating in Hour of Code™ across a two-week period so every student can use the skills and mindset needed today and tomorrow.

An hour of coding doesn't end after 60 minutes!

Advanced Option - Make apps, don't just use them!

Why?

Learning how to interact with computers is more than just typing and touching screens. By integrating coding and interacting with robots during Computer Science Education Week, we are working towards ISTE Standard 5. The activities involved also strengthen our skills as Empowered Learners, Creative Communicators and Knowledge Constructors.

The 'Hour of Code™' is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.
