Ralph Thoresby School Ambition and Achievement for All Back to home

Hour of Code

Students in Years 7 to 11 have recently been taking part in Hour of Code, an annual global effort designed to introduce students to computer science. Hour of Code is a 1 hour tutorial designed to inspire students to get into coding in order to broaden participation in the field of computer science.

“The Hour of Code is incredibly important for students all over the world,” Dr. Adam Miller, Director of Educational Technology, said. “With any skill, the more practice and familiarity you have, the more comfortable it will be for you in the future.”

Over 450 students took part over the course of the week with many saying they found it extremely enjoyable. Kai, who completed his Minecraft activity in an impressive time, said “It was great! Can we do this every lesson?”

In the Computing department we hope to continue Hour of Code in the near future.
