This club has ended for the 2017-2018 school year.
SCE will be introducing an ongoing Hour of Code club to continue our efforts in exposing as many students as possible to the Hour of Code program. Who Should Apply for this Program? The goal of the Hour of Code is not to teach students to become an expert computer scientist in one hour. One hour is only enough to learn that computer science is fun and creative, that it is accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of background. This club is for students who want to further the learning that is taking place in the Technology Lab and to help guide them towards more classes and challenges available through partners of the Computer Science Education Week Foundation.
The club will be open to 2nd-3rd graders and run on a month to month basis; starting on the first Monday of each month. Each group will meet for three Mondays in a particular month. Students will only be allowed to participate in one session (one month) until all students that want a chance to participate have been given an opportunity. Depending on space and technology limitations, the amount of students that can participate each month will vary.
Interested students need to be available to meet on the three designated Mondays of their selected month from 7:30-8:00 am. I will keep a running list of interested students and will create the monthly roster based on the applications I receive. I will notify you which month your student has been placed well in advance. I will move students up the list as needed. To sign your student up for a spot on one of the monthly clubs, please visit www.scegatortech.com (PW 123456) and click on the Hour of Code Club link.
