Young students get head start in computer programming
Students at Arbury Hills School in Mokena recently participated in an Hour of Code program. Students began using a simple block style method for video game coding. First and second grade students began programming code for maze activities related to “Ice Age,” “Angry Birds” and “Star Wars.” Third and fourth grade students were able to choose from many programming activities. Favorites included “Dance Party,” “The Grinch: Saving Christmas with Code,” “Minecraft” and “Star Wars.”
Second-grade students Parker Dorko-Rottmann and Brielle Spoolstra write computer codes for maze activities during a recent activity at Arbury Hills School in Mokena.
