Hour of Code Proves Engaging

The district kicked off its annual Hour of Code initiative last month with high school computer programming students visiting classrooms in the four elementary schools to work with second- and fifth-graders, preparing the younger students for a week of coding in the computer labs. The high schoolers shared games they created to demonstrate how computers and coding work.

“Our fifth-graders were fortunate to have the high school students visit to discuss coding,” said JFK Principal Deborah Smith. “The computer science students shared their expertise about the syntax of computer programming, and their presentation was engaging and interactive.”
