PARSIPPANY — Parsippany Hills High School’s Teach Coding Initiative (TCI group) is happy to announce that they will be hosting their annual Block Coding event on Saturday, August 24 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Parsippany-Troy Hills Library, 449 Halsey Road, in tech room.
This interactive, captivating, and free event provides children from first to eighth grade with the opportunity to learn the basic logic of computer programming all while having lots of fun! The new coders will be using the coding platform Tynker, which allows these students to use their thinking skills to win thrilling online puzzle games.
Connecting blocks of code together in order to win each level of Tynker’s games, the children will get a glimpse into the Computer Science world. Especially with an increasingly digitized age of computers, phones, and other devices, The Teach Coding Initiative hopes to inspire children to realize at an early age how fun and easy coding can actually be. Our initiative has experienced computer science teachers interacting with the students, giving a great opportunity for students to ask questions and have a great time.
