Description: The “official” Hour of Code takes place during Computer Science Education week in early December. BUT who says that we have to limit it to one hour? This class will allow you to explore some websites, online courses, and apps that will allow you to independently learn to code! Please note, this class will be based on students teaching themselves (and classmates!) how to complete some coding tasks accessible on the iPad in a quiet, collaborative environment! Headphones or earbuds, although not required, are helpful for using some of the tools and apps in the course. (Please note that this is the same course that was run last year; students are welcome to take the course again!)
