Prospect High School
Prospect High School, in celebration of the globally recognized Computer Science Education Week, will be hosting a community “Hour of Code” event for students and parents(Kindergarten-8th grade) on Wednesday, December 4th, from 6:00-7:30p.m. This event is created and led by students from Prospect.
The Hour of Code is a fun one-hour introduction to Computer Science, designed to demystify coding and show that anybody can learn the basics. At Prospect, we believe that every student should have the opportunity to learn Computer Science as it is a foundational skill that all students need in today’s world. In addition, computer coding helps to nurture problem-solving, critical-thinking skills, logic, and creativity. In it’s first 5 years at Prospect, nearly 700 people have attended this event and well over 250,000 lines of code have been written.
The Hour of Code experience at Prospect High School will provide parents and children with an opportunity to sit side-by-side in our computer labs while working through fun tutorials. These activities will allow the participants to modify and/or create games and other programs as well as continue their work when they leave.
No prior experience is necessary. This fun, globally-recognized activity is truly designed for people of all ages and all ability levels. All participants need to do is show up with and we will take care of the rest! Parents must remain with their children for the entire event.
