Photo Recap: 7,300+ Hours of December Coding in Minnetonka Schools

Grade 6 STEM students programming with Scratch

Two weeks ago was the International Hour of Code. Each of our elementary schools participated, and a total of over 7,300 hours of coding by classes was logged for K-5 students. In addition to these hours, students in many classes at both of our middle schools participated in coding activities in their core subject classes and STEM classes, as well as an elective coding class in eighth grade, but these hours were not tallied. Coding is also offered as an elective in our high school.

I've posted just a few of the photos of students coding during this time to give you a glimpse of some of the many activities that took place.
