Students get a taste for computer coding

11.12.13

This week, secondary school students in South Gloucestershire are taking part in a global initiative to learn more about computer code.

Around 1.5 million students across 141 countries are expected to take part in ‘The Hour of Code’ this week.

For one hour, teachers will share with students a lesson in computer coding from an online resource featuring tutorials from Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. The idea behind the project is to excite young people to discover how learning computer code can help as a potential career path.

Some of the secondary schools taking part in South Gloucestershire include Mangotsfield Secondary School where lessons start today along with Bradley Stoke Community School where pupils will be taking part at different times throughout the week.

Other schools participating in the event include Brimsham Green, Chipping Sodbury, Downend, Marlwood, Patchway, Sir Bernard Lovell and Winterbourne International Academy.

Cllr Ian Blair, Chair of the council's Children & Young People Committee, said: “From mobile apps to video games, and websites to robots, code is behind almost every technology, yet many of us have little or no idea how it works. The Hour of Code is a fantastic opportunity to help demystify this aspect of computer science and I am pleased that so many students will be taking part in this exciting global campaign.”

Bonnie Dean, Chief Executive of the Science Park, added: “Hour of Code is on track to be the largest online education event in history and it presents a fantastic opportunity for students in the region to learn from arguably the most successful computing entrepreneurs of our time.”

The project is being sponsored locally by the Bristol and Bath Science Park in Emersons Green and the West of England Local Enterprise Partnership.
