The Brook Hill Lower School joins the national coding initiative, “Hour of Code” each year. First through 5th grade students solve puzzles using a coding language called Blockly. Students are challenged to move characters through a maze, or as with Minecraft open gates and build bridges enabling characters to collect items needed to climb out of a pit.
The key to completion of these challenges is persistence, because thinking and testing solutions requires one not to give up easily. Students become excited and proud of themselves when problem are solved.
