Ingrained in every corner of our everyday lives, computer science is much more than about using and creating new technologies. It’s about making a difference to the world, developing innovations, and helping others.
The Hour of Code is a global initiative with the aims of eliminating the stigmatisation of computer science by providing an introduction to coding for every student, in an effort to build creativity, logic and problem solving skills within pupils of the 21st century.
To help achieve this in the South Island School community, representatives from the Digital Leadership Team and Maths Department organised a day of sessions on the 7th of December, allowing Year 8 students to produce images of snowflakes using the coding language of Java.
