North Merrick Students Participate in Hour of Code
Students in the North Merrick School District participated in the Hour of Code program during the week of December 3-9, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. This is a global movement to demystify coding and demonstrate to students that computer science is fun and creative. Teachers were able to choose from a variety of age-appropriate online challenges from http://hourofcode.org so students could create their own unique commands using basic computer science skills in an hour-long lesson. The aim of the program is to help nurture problem-solving and logic skills to build a foundation for success in any 21st century career path.
