When the tasting and judging was over, all had succeeded to one extend or another. (click on headline to read more)

hour of code logo Students - high school and preschool - work together on computer literacy
Much like teaching the alphabet and counting to ten, it's never too soon to begin introducing young people to the world of computing.

To that end, grade 10 and 11 students in the P-TECH Computer Technology Academy at Broome-Tioga BOCES hosted a visit Dec. 12 (field trip, if you prefer) by a group of prekindergarten children from Chenango Valley Nursery School, where they get some firsthand experience in computer coding and game creation.

Now in its third year, the "Hour of Code" gives BOCES students and prekindergarteners time together to explore how simple computer games are made and how changing the coding can impact the game.

The P-TECH students created the games specifically for the preschool visit using a special programming platform.Each game was designed to help the preschoolers develop their math skills.
National Computer Science Education Week and the Hour of Code are recognized each December to promote computer literacy and celebrate the problem-solving, logic and creativity used in coding.  View photo gallery

More than 1,000 area students put their creativity, ingenuity and teamwork skills to the test at Broome-Tioga BOCES annual Engineering Day events.
For the first time spread over three days due to growing interest, the hands-on challenge attracted students from 25 area school districts as they worked in teams to create the best "Rube Goldberg Machine" using a box of common household objects. The timed challenge was divided into three grade-level categories: high school, middle school and elementary school.
