Oxhead Road Elementary School students recently participated in the Hour of Code, a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in over 180 countries, to celebrate Computer Science Education Week (December 4 – December 10). The event is part of Middle County Central School District’s commitment to providing all students with 21st-century skills that promote creative problem-solving in a diverse and dynamic world.
“Participating in the Hour of Code not only introduces our students to the world of computer science but also encourages them to think creatively and critically,” said Phyllis Saltz, Principal of Oxhead Road Elementary School. “We believe that these skills are essential for our students’ future success in the 21st-century workforce.”
The students used Code.org, a non-profit dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools. This platform offers a wide range of coding activities suitable for all age groups and skill levels.
