SWHS Computer Science Students Take Coding to the Capitol

Spring Branch ISD was well represented at the state Capitol Monday, Dec. 4, for an Hour of Code with several legislators. Spring Woods High School teacher Daniel Angel and four students demonstrated their coding skills while helping the elected officials with basic coding.

“We’re (in Austin) to spotlight the need for science education for all students,” said Karen Justl, coordinator of educational technology in SBISD, from the Capitol. “We’re honored to have one of our Spring Woods High School teachers here with several of our computer science students to participate and teach legislators all about Hour of Code.”

Separately, students from teacher John Foshee’s computer science classes at Stratford High School last week mentored students at Thornwood Elementary and Nottingham Elementary with coding. And “Alex” from the mega-popular Minecraft is visiting with students at Buffalo Creek Elementary and Valley Oaks Elementary in support of Hour of Code.

Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in more than 180 countries.
