Last week all the students in the IT classes participated for the first time in Europe Code Week (, a Coding event that takes place in schools across Europe.  Pinewood students participated in  different programming activities depending on their grade level.  Our 6th and 7th graders were introduced to SCRATCH programming (a programming environment created by the M.I.T Lifelong Kindergarten Group). The 8th graders and High School IT classes participated in Javascript, basic programming concepts and problem solving through a CODE HS platform. 

Overall it was a very exciting and productive week. Students expressed their creativity through experimentation and exploration. The next International Coding event is in December, through the Hour of Code (
