This morning, 400 junior high-aged girls came to the ALC to participate in a girls-only field trip to promote the Hour of Code and the CodeGirl movie. The girls participated by watching half of the film and participating in coding in the individual computer labs.

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.

That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.

Every year ALC 3D Graphic and Animation students model, texture and carve pumpkins and place them in a spooky scene to be lit and rendered. This project teaches students how to work in a 3D production pipeline, going from concept to completion. This was a fun project and best of all no pumpkin guts to clean up.

Engineering Design Gallery Walk

Students in the ALC's Introduction to Engineering Design class recently took part in a brainstorming exercise where they redesigned an ordinary coffee cup. Students then participated in a “gallery walk” where they gave feedback on each other’s designs. They wrote “I Like…” and “I Wonder…” in response to each idea. This protocol will be used throughout the course to help students give feedback as part of project based learning.
