Hour of Code and Computer Science Education Week at ICS
Computer Science and programming is not just about programming. It is about thinking logically and analytically. It is about breaking down problems into parts and solving them using simple steps that can be followed. It is about figuring out how we can have machines do much of the work so we can do creative thinking and problem solving. It is about using these tools that we have on our desks and in our pockets to do work for us rather than just keep us entertained.
So when we talk about Computer Science Week or Hour of Code, we are trying to expose our students to the beauty and brilliance of being in charge of computers rather than just using them as a tool to surf the web.
This is the start of something beautiful and fun.
