Spotlight Story: WSD Takes Part in National Computer Science Education Week


The week of December 8-14, 2014 was considered National Computer Science Education Week.  In honor of the week, Wissahickon teachers and students joined many others around the nation to participate in the "Hour of Code".  During that week, teachers were encouraged to bring coding and programming into their classrooms for at least an hour.  To support this national endeavor, several websites provided interactive modules that teach the basics of programming in a fun and exciting way.  Here at WSD, we had students in all grade levels - even elementary - try their hand at coding.   

During this week, on December 11, 2014, the Middle School had an awesome opportunity to join in on a video chat with David Karp, founder of Tumblr.com.  Wissahickon was one of seven schools around the country to be selected and to take part in the live chat.  David Karp shared stories about how he got started and what coding means to him.  He also answered questions from the seven schools in attendance.  WMS felt honored to be chosen for this fantastic experience.    Along with the Wiss21 Initiative this is another example how Wissahickon is taking technology in education to the next level.
