Web Design students conduct second annual Hour of Code
Sophomore Hassan Bhatti creates his own gif as part of the second activity of the hour of code. Students participated in coding activities such as playing angry birds. "I enjoyed learning how to code because even though I don't use it, it's still a good skill to learn,"Bhatti said.

Web Design students were assigned a classroom to guide other students through the various coding related activities and were graded for their professional presentation.
“It was definitely rewarding to have the opportunity to share something I work with on a daily basis to students who thought it would never apply to them,” junior Brandon Ly said.
Prior to coding, students participated in “Fuzz Family Friendzy,” an activity where students were put into pairs to role-play as programmers and robots. Students were able to apply coding to simple tasks such as picking up a pencil.
“The Fuzz Family Friendzy challenge was a great icebreaker to introduce everyone to the basics of coding. It showed everyone how specific you had to be to complete a task,” freshman Alyssa Colligas said.
After the activity, students were given different coding activities based upon their program area.
“Some program areas may not interact with technology on an everyday basis. The point of the different activities was to show how technology effects everyone and has a relevant use for everyone,” senior Sabriya Said said.
