The idea was to introduce students to computer science and computer programming, and the rapidly-expanding and increasingly-important field of coding. Coding is the art of telling a computer how to perform complex tasks. As part of the Hour of Code in Livingston, first-graders worked on a Disney “Frozen” tutorial that allowed them to code the snowman from the popular movie. Older students created shapes, lines and colors with code; built a galaxy; and more.
Livingston is moving forward on plans to increase its investment in educational technology, and plans to continue participating in the Hour of Code in the future.
