Happy Birthday, Amazing Grace!

As we begin the kickoff to Computer Science EdWeek, I took some time to look back in time at the history of computer science.  Today's Google doodle focuses on her and so did we - Admiral Grace Hopper.

 


We read the following article and watched the "60 minutes Overtime" segment on Grace Hopper.

Great way to integrate non-fiction text, a bit of history, math, and making connections to coding and technology today.  Followed up with students weaving in writing skills as they summarized what they learned about Grace Hopper in a well-organized paragraph.
