An exciting opportunity was offered to Mark Twain students December 3 - 7! Students in grades 1 – 6 participated in the international Hour of Code program during their Library Lab time and classrooms.
The Hour of Code program, organized by Code.org, a public 501c3 non-profit organization, was developed a few years ago to encourage schools and businesses to offer computer coding experiences to adults and children alike. Computer coding helps to develop problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity. The challenge is to give a one-hour introduction to computer coding to as many people world-wide as possible. This year Hour of Code events have been scheduled in over 180 countries. Over 100 million students have participated in the program since its inception four years ago – and Mark Twain students are among them!
