Students in the Hicksville School District are learning how to code in the classroom. As part of Computer Science Education Week, which runs from Dec. 7-13, some students at the district’s elementary schools, including East Street and Dutch Lane, took part in the Hour of Code.

The Hour of Code is a global movement that’s meant to be used as a basic introduction to computer science. It teaches students that computer science is fun, creative and easily accessible to all ages. The Hour of Code website features a number of engaging coding activities for students.

Students in Mrs. Pope’s third grade class at Dutch Lane School earned certificates following the Hour of Code for their computer science skills.
