In recognition of Computer Science Education week the eighth-grade students at Robert M. Finley Middle School recently participated in the computer programming initiative The Hour of Code.

Over the course of one full class period, students learned the basics of coding and the importance computer science and computer programming plays in everyday life. They were also introduced to the variety of career paths for a computer science engineer or a computer programmer.  At the end of the course each student received a certificate of participation. 
The Hour of Code is an international program to broaden participation in the field of computer science.  The course has reached tens of millions of students in 180+ countries and is an introduction to computer science and computer programming.
