FMA Month of Code

FMA Month of Code
Posted on 01/11/2019
Hour of CodeIt's been a great month of coding at the Fletcher Maynard Academy! All month long technology classes in grades 1-5 have been delving into Computational Thinking and Computer Programming. During our time together, we have been focusing on activities that promote computational thinking, computer programming and creative coding.

Hour of CodeWe live in a world dependent on technology and we know that in whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on an understanding of how technology works. By participating in this "Month of Code," our students have developed an understanding of what's happening "under the hood" of the technology we use, and their imaginations have been "sparked" as they begin to devise what technology will bring us in the future.
