CCS Corner: Computer Coding At Columbus we know how important it is for students to learn to navigate today’s tech-saturated world. Regardless of what our students do when they grow up, whether they go into medicine, business, politics, or the arts, knowing how to build technology will give them the confidence and know-how to succeed. Students at both OLP Intermediate and Columbus Middle School have been learning about computer coding. The online site, Code.org designed "The Hour of Code” to demystify coding and show that computer science is not rocket-science, anybody can learn the basics. Through the online lessons students are learning about the “repeat” block and “if-then” statements. Logical thinking is required to give exact directions from the characters to complete their tasks. Students are really enjoying the lessons and discovering that coding was not as difficult as they thought. We think there may some future programmers in our school. Columbus Catholic Schools building bold futures. Call Mary Hartl at 715-387-2444 for more information
