Hour of Code

Programming and Robots

Why the interest in coding? In short, it helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. Coding drives innovation, allows students to be creative, builds confidence and translates to success in other areas.

It was great to see so many classes partaking in this year’s event. From kindergarten learning code in an ”unplugged” setting, to grades 1 and 2 using our new Ozobots, from grade 4 testing their skills on the "Hour of Code" online platform to grade 5 using the Bit Blocky to code, the interest and enthusiasm in coding is rampant at SIS Winterthur.

We look forward to many of our students moving into computer-science-based careers in the future.
