    Hour of Code

    Heuvelton students participated in Hour of Code last week! The Hour of Code (check out the video ) is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to show that anyone can learn the basics and create a awareness of the field of computer science.  The Hour of Code takes place during Computer Science Education Week, which this year is December 3-9. 

    Why Computer Science?- It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. Students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path. Just a quick fact- in 2015 -"7 million openings in the U.S. were in occupations—including art and design—that value coding skills." (https://hourofcode.com/us/promote/stats)  That number has grown since.
