District schools participate in “Hour of Code”

For the second year, nearly every school in PYLUSD participated in the 2015 Hour of Code from Dec. 7 through Dec. 11. The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. Click here to learn more. ‪#‎HourOfCode‬

Ruby Drive Elementary School
Second through sixth graders created a sequence of steps for a game, including Frozen, Star Wars, Minecraft and Angry Birds. Ruby Drive students found the exercise interesting and fun. A big thank you to Ingrid Requeno for coordinating the activities, printing certificates and taking pictures.

Valencia High School
Career Technical Education (CTE) classes, English language arts (ELA) and world language classes, as well as English Learner (EL) classes, worked on coding activities in the spirit of learning new skills and exploring technology. Mr. Parker’s AP Computer Science students provided expert help to students who came into the tech labs after school. In addition, “CodeGirl” Sana Talwar assisted at Kraemer Middle School to inspire students to try coding.

Yorba Linda High School
Students at YLHS made Spirographs during the Hour of Code. Creating the Spirographs involved changing computer code to create cool new designs.
