Computational Thinking & Coding
Code.org is a non-profit organization and eponymous website led by Hadi Partovi that aims to encourage people, particularly school students in the United States, to learn computer science.
Each year Wexford Elementary students experience coding in the computer lab for 8 to 10 weeks. Students learn the basics of computer science and internet safety.
By the end of third grade, students are utilizing block coding computer programming skills to create coding sequences using multiple blocks, multi-directional turns, loops and debugging.
