Hour of Code – iPads

The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries.

This week at IST students from all grades had the opportunity to participate in Hour of Code activities. For the younger students, EC – Grade 2, the Scratch Jr App on the school iPads provided a great opportunity to learn some programming basics.


Students chose characters, objects and backgrounds within the Scratch Jr App. Then chose what movements, actions and reactions would occur between the characters and objects in each scene. Some students particularly loved designing the costumes for the characters, others making the characters move around and dance. Overall the students enjoyed a simple form of coding!
