Students at Carlisle School just before the Christmas break celebrated Computer Science Education Week by taking part in the Hour of Code, a global effort to celebrate computer science. The students at Carlisle had the opportunity to create code, which drive software, apps and websites for all sorts of devices. Elementary students used apps on iPads to write code and heard from guest speakers about how this work is used in everyday enterprises. Students in the middle school played games on arcade machines that used games of Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and Centipede that were created with basic coding by students from the region. In the Upper School students recently completed an introductory course to Python 3 and will begin learning C++ next semester. They are also working with Arduino, an open-source electronic prototyping platform that enables users to create interactive electronic objects.
