On December 8th, excited, engaged 2nd through 5th grade Wolfe Street Academy (WSA) students packed into the school cafeteria to participate in the online National Hour of Code program, now a hallmark of Computer Science Education Week.

WSA coders joined the 100 million or so students worldwide who enjoyed Hour of Code,  a free program to introduce students to computer science and coding through fun, online programming activities. The global movement, which began in December 2013, is in 180-plus countries and has hosted more than 60,000 coding events in 2023. 

Led by Beth Miller, WSA Technology teacher, and WSA staff, the students learned about AI and created their own virtual dance party on Code.org. 

“WSA students enjoy showing their skills using blockly language and are excited about the possibilities of being future programmers!” says Ms. Miller. “Learning to code not only supports the importance of teamwork, it also engages students in deep thinking and developing life skills, such as breaking large, complex problems into small, manageable steps.” 

Way to code, Wolfe Street!
