Hour of Code

Dec. 21, 2018 

Hour of Code More than 9,500 Pflugerville ISD students participated in plugged and unplugged coding activities during the annual Hour of Code event, which took place from Dec. 3-19.

Eight campuses achieved a goal of 85 percent or above participation and qualified to receive a campus or district prize. Each campus today received Circuit Playground microcontroller boards and Micro:bit controller bundles. Each type of controller can be programmed to perform numerous tasks through the online Microsoft MakeCode applications.

The eight campuses are:

  • Pace High School
  • Provan Opportunity Center
  • Westview Middle School
  • Murchison Elementary
  • Pflugerville Elementary
  • Ruth Barron Elementary
  • Spring Hill Elementary
  • Windermere Elementary 

Additionally, Murchison Elementary, Ruth Barron Elementary and Provan Opportunity Center each had 100 percent participation, as many students on those campuses participated in two or more coding activities with different teachers and class periods. As the district’s top Hour of Code campuses, these schools received additional controllers.
