Seventh-grade students at Devall Middles School programmed and designed their own Google logo as part of the Hour of Code. Google often creates special logos, called Google Doodles, to celebrate holidays and important people, places, and events. Students in Mrs. Scott’s computer class got to be the artist and programmer for their own special logo. To do this, students used the programming language Scratch. Many programmers write code in text, meaning that they type it out on the keyboard. With the Scratch language, you code using blocks that snap together like puzzle pieces. Students completed their logos and submitted surveys to google. As a result, the class was awarded a $100 gift card.
