GMS 5th grade students are learning how to ‘code’ games. Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, games, apps and websites. We use ‘The Hour of Code’ as an introduction to computer science because it is designed to eliminate the mystery of code and show that anybody can learn the basics. GMS 5th graders wrote a code needed to create their very own Flappy Bird game….. from scratch! Lots of critical thinking going on.
