Lincoln Academy Invites the Community to Practice an Hour of Code

2018-11-16T13:02:15+00:00November 16, 2018|

This December, Lincoln Academy will again participate in the Hour of Code, an international movement whose mission is to make computer coding skills fun and accessible for everyone. This year’s event will take place on Wednesday, December 5 from 3-4 pm at Lincoln Academy.

Coding is sometimes referred to as the “fourth literacy,” and knowing even a little bit can help expand people’s understanding of technologies that they use every day. The public is invited to come spend an hour with LA students either learning the basics or taking their coding skills to the next level.

The Lincoln Academy Coding Club will host this year’s event in the LA Library Annex, upstairs from the main office. Participants are invited to join millions of students around the world who will be participating in Hour of Code events celebrating International Computer Science week. This year Code.org, the international organization that designs the Hour of Code curriculum, has chosen the theme of “Creativity,” and designed activities that integrate arts and music into coding.

All welcome and encouraged to attend! See the Hour of Code Facebook event at this link. For more information, email: liangww@lincolnacademy.org or shenks@lincolnacademy.org.
