Students across the district learned the basics of how computers work by learning to write code. As part of Computer Science Education Week, students at schools including Wilbur, Mayberry, Allison, L’Ouverture and Hyde participated in the world-wide Hour of Code initiative. Hour of Code teaches students basic computer programming skills by having students play games or create animated programs by using drag and drop commands such as move forward, turn left, play music, etc. The more advanced a student becomes, the more command options the student is allowed to use.
The goal is to have students learn computer programming early to have a foundation of success in any future career path. Students use logic and problem-solving skills while learning how to write code.
