Hoonah Students Learn to Code Using Acellus

Hoonah Students complete Level One Coding Course
STEM StudentsHoonah School has been on the front line of bringing STEM courses to our students. HCSD was one of the first Alaskan schools to introduce a robotics program course open to all students. With an eye on the future HCS is introduced the Acellus program to our students teaching foundational to advanced computer coding. These four students are the first to complete Coding 101. Congratulations to these students.

Course Overview

In the Acellus STEM 1: Introduction to Coding course, students are taught how to program using the Blockly coding language. With Blockly, everything is done with little building blocks that snap together in an intuitive way. Each block represents a small piece of code that together make an entire program. Coding with blocks allows students to focus on the fundamental principles of coding without the challenging initial learning curve required for traditional programming languages. Students will be led through activities with incrementally more advanced building blocks. Each block is similar in structure to the syntax and style of real world programming languages. As students learn to program by snapping blocks together, they are laying a foundation for more advanced programming languages. Students will learn about conditional statements, loops, and functions.
