Cardinal Gibbons Students Participate in "Hour of Code" for "Computer Science Education Week"
Chari Distler

Cardinal Gibbons celebrated "Computer Science Education Week," Dec. 9-13, with "Hour of Code." Each student had a week’s worth of activities available on their iPads and was given time in their APEX classes to be exposed to Computer Science.

With technology all around us, the faculty and staff at Cardinal Gibbons are encouraging every student to try a skill that transitions them from consumers to creators. Although Computer Science is not new to Cardinal Gibbons, it is certainly growing in popularity. Students that are exposed to Computer Science at a younger age are more apt to take a class in it and even pursue it as a career in the field. In efforts to grow our STEAM program, we have encouraged all of our students to give it a try.

Throughout "Computer Science Education Week," students had a chance to win a Think-Make-Code T-shirt to show off their newly honed coding skills. All students who participated gave a tremendous effort.
