The hour of code is a global movement, which started as an introduction to computer science. The event takes place during Computer Science week, Dec. 5-11 and millions of students from more than 180 countries from around the world take part in the event.

Online tutorials are available and students can download.

Facilitated by Rachel Allen, library media specialist; and John DeGone, technology teacher at the school, the week-long event saw students from grades 6-12 take part.

The students could select from a wide variety of coding opportunities, including building a flappy game, mine craft style gaming, even creating a cell phone app!

Students can take their interest in coding into more advanced coding tutorials or explore more through DeGone’s classes at the school.

Participation in the voluntary opportunity was good and coordinators hope to continue the event in the future.
