Campbellsville High School students recently taught elementary school students how to write computer coding.
Student Technology Leadership Program and computer science students recently taught Campbellsville Elementary School first-graders in Amanda Greer’s class about computer coding.
The CHS students told the first-graders that learning computer coding can help them in their future careers. They then led a hands-on activity in which the elementary school students wrote computer codes and portrayed robots to test the codes for accuracy.
The activity was part of Computer Science Education Week.
As part of the week, students worldwide were encouraged to participate in an Hour of Code, a hands-on experience learning to write computer code. More than 750 of Kentucky’s schools, businesses and organizations participated in the Hour of Code. In 2013, when the initiative began, there were 30 events.
