Project Curiosity X Friends of SSCPS Hour of Code
Computers are everywhere, changing every industry on the planet. But fewer than half of all schools teach computer science. Good news is, we’re on our way to change this! If you’ve heard about the Hour of Code before, you might know it made history. More than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code.
With the growth of the Hour of Code movement, many schools and multi-national companies have joined forces to promote computer science and have become the supporting organisation of this important worldwide event. We are delighted to participate in the SSCPS Family Fun Day 2018 to support the School’s important STEM initiative.
The Hour of Code is organized by Code.org, a public non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of colour. The Hour of Code is celebrated during the annual Computer Science Education Week in December. Code.org®, the CODE logo and Hour of Code™ are trademarks of Code.org.
Project Curiosity X Society for Community Organisation (SoCO)
After planning since the beginning of this year, we have rolled out our first coding workshop with SoCO for the kids served by their centre in Sham Shui Po district. The smart kids have enjoyed this fun coding workshop and are progressing very well using our Raspberry Pi based Qi Computer and Hour of Code by Code.org.
TWGHs Lee Ching Dea Memorial College Raspberry Pi Leadership Programme First Year Graduation & Presentation Project Competition Award Presentation Ceremony
After learning how to use Raspberry Pi to assist their self-learning and to code software and physical computing games for one year, the high school students also learned how to create presentation and video on the subjects they are interested most. Apart from the great personal involvement and support from the school Principal, Deputy Principal, Computer subject teacher, one of the important elements of the programme is to identify and to train up a group of more senior secondary school students to become the coach for the lower form students. This is certainly one of the most successful workshops we have been working with for sure. As this is a three-year programme, we look forward to more success in our second year based on the learning from this first year of experience together!
Coding Working – Project Curiosity X Crossroads Foundation
We have organised our second coding workshop for the kids from the volunteer families of Crossroads Foundation. The kids have spent four weekly coding workshop to code their own video games, video animation in Scratch, fun coding modules from Hour of Code from Code.org, and, for the two most advanced kids, some challenging games similar to the famous retro game “Space Invader”!
