{LPS53 Hour of Code}

At LPS, we honor our commitment to an authentic learning journey as constant learners in the world around us. Although we’re spending an hour coding, this is NOT about the coding; it’s about being a learner and learning how to think critically.


Let’s challenge our thinking about learning!







Building Community

  1. Get Excited: Watch Hour of Code Video (2:22 minute) with class to understand why we’re exploring computer science as a district

  2. Get Ready: Watch LPS Hour of Code Video (0:34 seconds) with class to hear from Dr. Tucker


Building Larger Community

Go to Hour of Code Website

  1. Examine world map of all Hour of Code events to explore locations & discuss our connection to the larger community through computer science
