Anybody Can Learn to Code

In December, our school participated in The Hour of Code, an opportunity for every student try computer programming. This was an amazing experience with even our youngest students giving it a try. 
Since then, my students have continued to learn by going through the K-8 Intro to Computer Science course at http://learn.code.org/.
This is a great opportunity for every student. The tutorials are all there to walk the students through all of the steps.
One of my students completed the course in a couple weeks, another is close to completion and the rest are working on it at their own pace. The two who are farthest along are mentoring a 1st grader who is interested in learning also.
