Chabot is participating in the Hour of Code week beginning Monday December 7. Ms. Ettinger, Chabot’s Library Media Teacher, will be using interactive tutorials all week during regular media classes for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. The students will get hands-on experience of programming a computer.

Hour of Code is a nationwide campaign to celebrate computer science and coding for kids of all ages. Through age-appropriate tutorials kids learn constructive computer use, nurture creativity, and improve problem-solving skills. You can learn more about Hour of Code at these links:
