The Hour of Code is an exciting opportunity to introduce students to computer science. It’s designed to demystify code and show that anybody can learn the basics. The goal of this international campaign is to provide a coding experience to over 100 million students worldwide in celebration of Computer Science Education Week.
All Smith STEM students in grades PreK – 5 will have an hour of coding experience during their library times with Mrs. Giliberto and Mrs. Zajack.

Why computer science?
Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Computer programming or “coding” helps nurture creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills, all of which are needed to prepare students for any future career!
