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.
At East Street, all students in kindergarten through fifth grade took part and at Dutch Lane, third through fifth graders participated.
