Coding in Computer Class

The Fifth and Sixth Class worked in Scratch on game design as a way to practice problem solving and computational thinking as well as learning the basics of programming. The Seventh class studied HTML and CSS (hypertext markup language and cascading style sheets) and will create a web page that addresses an issue of global concern in the third trimester. The Eighth class used Thunkable, a cross platform language initially developed by MIT, that allows them to create mobile apps for either iOS or Android platforms; their first project was a language translator that translates from English to Spanish and returns the results both in text and the spoken word.
