Project Update: Hour of Code

The Coding team has been exploring intermediate and advanced coding tutorials and apps. This week the entire club joined them by exploring sites produced for Hour Code. In the end, the club reviewed over 50 games, tutorials, and apps to find the best introductory and intermediate coding activities to share with their peers during Hour of Code. Their top choices will be available to students throughout the school year via the Media Center sections of the School Sites.
