students coding on computers

Lake Hills recently hosted Microsoft’s Minecraft Education Development Team to test out its latest version of Minecraft Edu before its official launch for Computer Science (CS) Education Week on Dec. 9 through Dec. 13. Lake Hills classes became two of only three classrooms in the world to beta test Minecraft’s “Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Good” lesson on how computational thinking and programming are used in the real world to solve problems such as controlling the spread of wildfires. Students applied coding concepts of sequencing and conditionals to program a robot that could analyze potential forest fire hazards and remove them to protect the surrounding environment. They really enjoyed the opportunity to practice these computer science concepts in one of their favorite games. Their hard work helped the developers make improvements to the lesson before the software’s official launch, so Lake Hills students will have an impact on computer science learning around the world!
