Looking for a gentle, self-paced introduction to Bootstrap? Try the Hours of Code below. No prior programming experience required!

Intro to Graphics

🖼Show image This Hour of Code lesson is a great, self-paced activity to introduce students to Bootstrap. Students explore simple function composition and order of operations in WeScheme, and then build on that knowledge to create simple computer graphics.

Build a Snowman!

🖼Show image This Hour of Code lesson has a winter theme, with the option of students modifying code to build a snowman at the end! More rigorous than the first Hour of Code lesson, it includes videos to support students in learning to code at their own pace in WeScheme.

Hour of Data

🖼Show image This Hour of Data lesson is a self-guided Desmos activity. Students explore data visualization, introductory programming using The Pyret Programming Language, and the application of Data Science to solve real problems. Students will investigate a data set of vehicle-wildlife collisions in Vermont and make recommendations about where to build wildlife overpasses.
