Students at all five elementary schools in the Bethlehem Central School District participated in an Hour of Code on Wednesday, December 7. The Hour of Code is a worldwide annual campaign sponsored by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org as a way to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming. Students in kindergarten through grade five were instructed on how to use fun and engaging coding games designed to introduce them to coding concepts and engage them in computer science at an early age.
