Hour of Code with Miss Laman-Maharg’s Class & McLean HS!

Blog by Miss Laman-Maharg:

Today, for the week of Computer Science Education Week, students in Ms. Laman-Maharg’s class participated in an Hour of Code lesson and activity led virtually by students from McLean High School. The Hour of Code is an introduction to computer science, designed to explain code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Mrs. Buggio worked with students last week, too, to give them an introduction to coding using a computer game. The students also discussed uses of computer science: how it helps problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity, and is essentially used in every profession today. Students in Ms. Laman-Maharg’s class were able to learn virtually from high school students to program their computers using JavaScript. Pretty awesome experience!
