Hour of Code 2016 Success

This week at RES students participated in hour of code.  I wrote a blog post describing our plans here:
This is the third year in a row that educators at our school have worked to host this event.  It is great to see the learning and knowledge that students are gaining about coding!  It is also fun to watch those students that gravitate towards this learning to have the opportunity to be classroom leaders and support the learning of fellow students.

Coding is a language and creating code requires creativity, critical thinking and collaboration.  Some people may be surprised by the conversations, giggling and hands on learning that was a part of coding this week--it was awesome!  These pictures and video can provide a glimpse into the excitement!
