This week is the UK’s Hour of Code week. It is an opportunity for every student @ Inglefield House to try computer science for one hour. Click the link below to sign up for computer science tutorials on Code.org (with me as your “teacher”):
The tutorials are fun, visually engaging, and teach the basic concepts of computer science using a simple, guided, game-like experience. Learn to code from Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Angry Birds, and Plants vs. Zombies! 🙂
