Safford Unified School District students took part in an Hour of Code™ during National Computer Science week last month. Our technology department hosted the first Hour of Code™ event for students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. Fifty SUSD students joined the millions of students throughout the world by participating in a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming.
One of the favorite coding activities involved creating a Dance Party and sharing their creation with the other students.
Coding is just one element of computer science, a broad field that covers how and why technologies work and how they can solve real-world problems.
We were thrilled to have so many students take part in the Hour of Code™. It was especially wonderful to see our younger students get a head start on using technology to solve problems and find creative solutions.
