Davidson MS Students Participate in the Hour of Code

Students at Davidson Middle School and across the county participated in the Hour of Code the week of December 5th – 9th as part of Computer Science Education Week.  The Hour of Code encourages all students to learn more about how technology works and guides them through the creation of various software applications.    

“The purpose of the Hour of Code is to introduce students to coding to see if it is something they would be interested in doing,” said Toni Toney, Davidson’s Choice Instructor.

The Hour of Code is not designed to teach students to become expert computer scientists but shows them that learning computer science is fun and creative, that it is accessible at all ages, regardless of experience.  All activities are self-guided, include tutorials, and offer multiple options for every age and experience-level, from kindergarten and up.

The Hour of Code, which usually takes place each year during Computer Science Education Week, is held annually in recognition of the birthday of computing pioneer Admiral Grace Murray Hopper (December 9, 1906).
