Lake Geneva Schools Join Mission to Introduce Students to Computer Science

December 11, 2017 - We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.  Learning even the basics will help students in nearly any career—from engineering to zoology. Just as we teach students how to dissect a frog, or how electricity works, it’s important for every student to have a chance to design an app or an algorithm, or learn how the Internet works.

That’s why our schools joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (December 4-10). More than 100 million students worldwide participate in the Hour of Code.

The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.

Take a look below at a few of the wonderful activities that took place throughout Lake Geneva Schools during our participation in The Hour of Code:
