Elementary Hour of Code Project - Town Centre Private School Markham

Elementary Hour of Code Project

Every student in TCPS is given an opportunity to learn computer science and computer programming as core parts of the curriculum. Coding is part of the Ontario math curriculum. 

A global movement with over 180 countries participating, the Hour of Code is an introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. 

Each grade used their grade-specific Computer Science Fundamentals course.  Designed to be fun and engaging, Computer Science Fundamentals courses blend online and “unplugged” non-computer activities to teach students computational thinking, problem-solving, programming concepts and digital citizenship. The courses are optimized for each grade, and each includes 10-25 hours of instructed learning over several lessons. Students created their own games, art, and digital stories that they can share. 

Collectively the TCPS grades 1 – 8 students wrote and recorded an unbelievable 1,699,834 lines of code.  Outstanding!
