During their library time, students in all classes will be working their way through various computer programming tutorials for the month of December. The Hour of Code™ learning event officially takes place during Computer Science Week Dec. 5th-11th, 2016. “The ‘Hour of Code™’ is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.” Check out these video introductions.
