    Thanks to parents attending Dublin's first ever Parent University! I am thrilled that you selected the Hour of Code session. My goal is to give you a deeper understanding of the purpose of The Hour of Code and how it fits into Computer Science Education Week.

    Education Week. Here are our session materials.
    Hour of Code happens during Computer Science Education Week. So what is computer science? It is the study of computers and algorithmic processes, including their principles, their hardware and software designs, their applications, and their impact on society (Tucker et. al, 2006, p. 2). Computer science is more than just code. It's mostly about the thinking.

    Press the green flag to get another letter/ word in the top right corner. To start, press the space key. You are the bug, so to control it, press the arrow keys. You are trying to get all the letters, except for the ones that are black, (hint: the one in the big letters in the top right corner). If you do eat the black ones, it's game over. There is a timer to show how long it takes you, and on the bottom right corner is a recharge flag, which makes you smaller and faster, so it's easier to win! Also, the two letter words are in bright blue, because they are harder to get. Good luck!
