GSA Students Participate in Hour of Code
Our students (grades 3-8) are participating in the worldwide Hour of Code during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). It is a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. The Hour of Code is just the first step on a journey to learn more about how technology works and how to create software applications. The students earn a certificate when they finish each tutorial.
