The hour of code

It was a "mind-blowing experience" as our grade 4 class, along with three other classes from Bedford Public School, participated in the Hour of Code on December 8th at the University of Waterloo's Stratford Campus. The event kicked off the week long celebration of Computer Science Education week. The Hour of Code is a global movement aimed at demystifying computer science. We joined tens of millions of students in 180 countries to write our first few lines of code. 

Why Stratford?

One of the best parts of my job is showing guests around the Stratford Campus. It's always fun to see the awe on people's faces as they admire our unique 3-storey Christie® MicroTiles wall, or test out the Augmented Reality (AR) apps in the Engage Lab. As I tour visitors through this unique space I am often faced with the same question: Why here? Why Stratford?
