This is a post for the Student Blogging Challenge! Let's get coding!
Hour of Code is an annual event to promote Computer Science. According to their website:
The Hour of Code takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week. The 2018 Computer Science Education Week will be December 3-7, but you can host an Hour of Code all year round. Computer Science Education Week is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
We're starting Hour of Code and changing the name to Hours of Code!
Thank you, Hadi Partovi for creating this project!
Computer Science week coincides with the birthdays of two computer science pioneers. A pioneer is a person who is one of the first to enter a field of study or explore a new area of thought.
1. Ada Lovelace, born in England on December 10, 1815, is considered the world's first computer programmer.
2. Grace Hopper, whose birthday is December 9, 1906, was an American computer programmer and Navy rear admiral. She contributed to the development of the COBOL language and is credited with popularizing the term "computer bug" in the programming community.
Grace Hopper said, "To me programming is more than an important practical art. It is also a gigantic undertaking in the foundations of knowledge."

One of the important things about problem-solving is persevering. Sometimes you try an algorithm, or list of steps used to solve a problem, and it fails, adjust your algorithm. Try again! This strategy is called trial and error.

We needed our secret image to sign in! What a cute array!
Let the coding begin!

We even showed our second grade buddies how to code!
