Week of Code!

To celebrate National Computer Science Week, Richmond Middle School Students have been participating in the Hour of Code which is an annual event designed to introduce students all over the world to computer science and “to demystify code and show that anyone can learn the basics.”

Each day of the week, coding events were held in the RMS Lobby during lunch for all grades.  
Monday: Students had an opportunity to use iPads to program “Ollie” and “Dot” robots through mazes.
Tuesday and Wednesday: Students worked through coding challenges on the and Scratch websites.
Thursday: Art Teacher Luke Eastman demonstrated how to program and print using a 3D printer.
Friday:  Hanover High School Student Morgan Meliment shared an app he developed to help improve scores in an app called “Dotts”.

Our goal was to have every student participate in at least an hour of programming.  Thanks to all for a great week!
