Hour of Code in Hawaii's Classrooms -- So inspiring!


It's so inspiring to learn about how schools in Hawaii are participating in coding activities, not only during Hour of Code Week December 8-14, 2014, but throughout the school year!

So far, we've done two Google Rocks! Hawaii hangouts to celebrate Hour of Code in Hawaii, and, who knows, there may be more!

Teachers +Shane Asselstine of Momilani Elementary (21:58), +Steve Qunell of Iao Intermediate (33:14), and +Rachel Armstrong of Hale Kula Elementary (07:42) joined us for the first hangout in December, with K5 Affiliate Trainer for Hawaii +Evelyn Zayas (02:21) briefing us about code.org.

A Big Mahalo to all of these innovative Hawaii teachers who agreed to come on our weekly hangout to share about coding at their school.

Might there be another Hour of Code, Hawaii Style show in our Google Rocks! Hawaii hangout future to learn about how other Hawaii schools are coding? Now that would be fabulous! Please contact me or Michelle, or we may be contacting you. :)

Happy coding!
