IWES Students Do an Hour of Code

This week some of the students at IWES participated in a global event called the Hour of Code. This event takes place in over 180 countries around the world. Students were introduced to the world of writing computer code using a variety of apps and online activities.

First grade students started working through some puzzles on the Kodable website. We worked together on the Smartboard to move a blue fuzzy ball named SpikeFuzz to the end of a maze using a series of arrows to make our program.
