Elementary students across the district developed their coding skills during Computer Science Education Week December 3-6. Schools held Hour of Code events during class or after school through a parent night dedicated to the computer science program.
According to the Hour of Code website, the Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code”, to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science.
The National Center for Education Statistics reported 570,926 open computing jobs nationwide, with only 49,291 computer science students graduating into the work force last year. By making an early introduction to coding and computer science, Frenship students will have the opportunity to bridge that gap in the future.
