Students at Orangeburg Preparatory School's Lower Campus are joining in one of the largest learning events in history, the Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week, Dec. 3-9.
The Hour of Code began as a one-hour coding challenge to give students a fun first introduction to computer science and has become a global learning event and celebration. Students grades Kindergarten through 5th grade have been coding since August in the computer lab as part of the STEM curriculum taught by Ms. Kathy Creech.
Coding is the computer language used to develop apps, websites, and software. Since computer science is changing every industry on the planet, every student should have the opportunity to learn how to create technology. Computer science concepts also help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills to prepare students for any future career. For more information, visit orangeburgprep.com.
