The Year 8 Digital Technology Forum is a week long program which aims to develop the students skills in Information Technology. The goal for the week is for students to produce a product they have developed using coding they have learnt about during the week. As part of this week, the students will be taking part in the International Hour of Code. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts, https://hourofcode.com/au.
We hope our students enjoy their week.
