Day 1 of the Hour of Code in Intermediate School

During Day 1 of the 'Hour of Code', 132 students from Grades 4 and 5 were thoroughly engaged in coding activities provided by code.org.
Why are we getting our students involved in the 'Hour of Code'? Coding helps to develop computational and critical thinking skills, and, as pointed out at code.org, it shows students how to create, not simply use new technologies.
One grade 5 student summed it up on his blog post: "...it is important to know how to code because coders are the rulers of the future!"
