Computer Science Week Willmore Language Academy

Computer Science Education Week is an annual program dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to take interest in computer science. In 2017, it took place from December 4th-10th which coincides with the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906). At Willmore Language Academy, students from TK-5th grade joined millions of students worldwide in completing activities related to computer programming and robotics.

Third grade students also took part in webinars to learn more about jobs in computer science. They communicated with the app developers at SeeSaw, a popular digital portfolio used by teachers and students across the nation.

Willmore students learned how to begin to design apps as well as learned about the various jobs at this startup company.

Classroom Buddies met throughout the week to work on coding. Upper grade students work with their Kindergarten buddies weekly to help develop digital literacy skills. During Computer Science Education Week, the upper grade Bigs coached their Littles in Code.org's Hour of Code lessons.
