Students at the international school of Luxembourg got a glimpse into the world of coding last week
Students at the international school of Luxembourg got a glimpse into the world of coding last week during computer science education week.
For the fifth year running, the school participated in “the hour of code”, where students participated in activities to develop computational thinking skills, a problem-solving approach which enables a computer or machine to carry out a task. In one activity, students created basic coded commands to direct a robotic ball around a maze. In another class, students dismantled a wireless router to see how it provides internet access.
“We can’t predict the careers and ways of living in the future but we do know our students will have to think about the world in a different way, which coding helps them to do and that’s one of the reasons why we have CSEdWeek at ISL,” ISL director Nicki Crush said.
