During the week of December 9th students at Diamond Lake District 76 participated in the “Hour of Code” yearly event. 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, celebration, and awareness event. Each grade level utilized various coding resources found on our D76 Coding Dashboard and participated in various events exploring the world of Computer Science while providing students soft skills learning experiences of problem solving and perseverance.
