Miltonvale 5th and 6th Graders Celebrate Computer Science Week

by Crystal Weishaupl

December 16, 2019

Ms. Weishaupl’s 5th and 6th grade science class celebrated Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), which was December 3-9, 2019, by participating in Google’s Hour of Code lessons and games.  We started the week off by practicing some coding with our favorite Christmas character, The Grinch!  The goal of the program was to code a drone to maneuver around obstacles and pick up gifts.  After warming up our coding skills, the students spent the rest of the week coding a hero on a coding program called Scratch.  They designed their character, edited dialogue, programmed movements, and added features like background music.  Most of the students really enjoyed their time coding and a few really excelled in this area of science.
