GCA Technology Students and the Hour of Code

01.04.2021 / By Granville Christian Academy

Our GCA technology students in grades K-12 particpated in the “Hour of Code” as a part of Computer Science Education week with 100 million other students from around the world. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to make it clearer and easier to understand “code.” A one hour of code is designed to show that learning computer science is fun and creative, that it is accessible at all ages, for all students, regardless of backgrounds. Students gain knowledge through a series of game-based block coding or type coding. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity. Over 100 million students have now discovered how accessible and fun computer science can be by doing just one Hour of Code. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. At the completion of the week, students received participation Certificates. Congratulations on a great week of Technology!
